Submission + - Is Google Naive, Crafty or Stupid? (huffingtonpost.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A Huffington Post column by James Boyle exploring the "why" of the Google-Verizon proposal..

Verizon is, at base, a telephone company; it thrives in the interstices of state regulation the way small marine organisms thrive inside the nooks and crannies of a coral reef. That is its preferred habitat. Its organizational culture evolved there and it is brilliantly adapted to it. Google is a company built by engineers. The initial reaction of engineers to regulation — and I speak as someone who has had to explain legal rules to computer scientists many times — is simply to reject large amounts of them as "stupid" and thus obviously not real. ..
