Earlier this week, BlackBerry CEO John Chen penned a blog post on net neutrality. He was in favor of net neutrality but in the last half of his post introduced a whole new notion of neutrality: “application neutrality,” or app neutrality for short.
Suffice it to say, the internet decided this was crazy. And, I’m going to keep it real here. I agree. It is crazy. Really crazy to equate app neutrality with net neutrality.
