This is interesting in several fronts. First of all, Facebook shouldn't try to present a business move as an altruistic move. It's hypocritical and reminds me too much of a different Internet company. But the net neutrality aspect is also important. It's very dangerous to make a single company the gatekeeper of speech and communications, which is what the Internet serves as a platform for.
Richard Stallman says that cloud computing is evil because all your data is held on to by a third party. Also that it will work because a sucker is born every minute. I don't think people will use it (only) because they are suckers. They will use it because it's so convenient, and people are willing to give up control and/or money in exchange for convenience.
Google has started their own DNS service. This is the service that converts a domain name such as kirsch.com.mx into the actual Internet Protocol (IP) address such as 126.96.36.199. As you can imagine, this service is accessed almost every time you enter a URL. When you configure your computer to access the internet, you enter the DNS servers provided by your ISP. You can replace them with Google's (188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206). In theory, their service will be faster and more secure than what you are probably using now.
