Small Investors Embrace Hedge Fund-Like Strategies
With the economic recovery recently turning bumpy, investors have grown wary of downside risk in their investment portfolios and are increasingly willing to give up some returns in exchange for protection from those risks. Volatility spiked in May, as concerns about European sovereign debt and a bigger-than-anticipated slowdown in China's economy shook the market's confidence.

Slashdot | Breakdown of Bandwidth Costs?
I'm taking a bit of a stab in the dark here, but I think this guy actually wants to know *what* he's paying for - so he can perhaps engage his ISP in some informed discussion so as to bargain the costs to him incurred from say, a slashdotting, down.
