G-Man has details of the Government decision to unbundle . An extract:

“For years now, actually 4, David Farrar has exploited his position as the highest rated blog in New Zealand, despite demands to the contrary. We feel it is therefore in the greater public interest to break-up this virtual monopoly. he has used and abused his position shamelessly, at the expense of others who have been forced to read his amusing yarns and Babylon 5 anecdotes, often against their very will,” said Chairperson Katherine Rich.

Of course the cost of building a blog to compete with Kiwiblog is oh around NZ5c while the cost of building a rival local loop would be around $5 billion, but hey it’s still an amusing analogy.
