Title: RE: Statements against new.net?

Adrian: The key word is "cooperating".  New.net (and its brethren that are being born in technology incubators as we speak) are not "cooperating", they're intentionally "culture-jamming" for their own gain.

Hrm. Somewhere along the line I remember the Internet being defined
as a bunch of networks cooperating in order to exchange information.

When did that change? :-)

I'll be happy when more companies start to see that they canactually
make money by fostering internet growth rather than making money by
abusing internet growth.
