It's a trap no matter what. Unless you are contributing more than that big corporations are to political campaigns, then there will be holes through this thing the next time the public blinks. Government control will allow them to keep the local loop under their control. It might be better in the short term, but in the long term it will be the same. I don't think the FCC action is bad, and in fact I'm glad for the moment, but the long game has always belonged with the corporations. We need to get Aaron Swartz-ish on them. And, until corporations aren't the ones putting candicates on the ballot, we need to keep on them forever. Keep your eye on the FCC.

I took a vacation from RIAA and MPAA entertainment purchases from 2000-2013, but it seems I need that vacation again. Thanks for the reminder.
Also, anyone not running a DNS server, you should. We also need a durable decentralized method of locating a server or more mobile content delevery methods.
Cable Companies: Would you like a piece of candy?
Stewie: I smell death on you
That's why almost everywhere in the US there is a monopoly on Cable TV and Telephone, which also mafically translates into a monopoly or biopoloy for Internet access and municipal fiber is supressed. Seems like those could be the actions of a money whoring jackss who wants the US to have crappy Intrnet, not someone who embaraces comptition.
Sorry, the spear is going to cost extra.
DENTON, Texas (CN) - A "revenge pornography" website gained unauthorized access to nude photographs of a woman and posted them on the Internet, the woman claims in court.
Shelby Conklin sued Verisign, Katz Global Media, and Pinkmeth.com, in Denton County Court.
Pinkmeth is her main target. She claims Tucson-based Katz sold "anonymous hosting" Internet services to PinkMeth, and she wants Verisign to disable the PinkMeth website.
Which is why it's on ~1 out of 9 t-shirts, ~4 out of 10 underwear, and 3 out of 100 tatoos. They could license it for 1$.
DISCLAIMER: Statistics in this particular post are completely wrong, but are used to make a point.
I'm interested! Let's do this. I've spent a good deal of time creating products that make millions for others, but haven't branched out on my own in a long time. It's about time.
I'm a normal looking guy, but older than most in the computer industry at ~46. I have some white hair, but otherwise look young for my age. During my Google interview it was clear that the people I was talking to were extremely surprised to meet me. I had to check to see if I had a potted plant on my head or a 3rd arm growing from my chest. I could tell it was the age that put them off. I did extremely well in the interview, but based on the reactions I got I did not expect to get the job, which I did not. No reason was given, but that is their normal policy.
A strong AT&T has been the Internet ruin for a long time. They have lobbyests and have far more input than most. It's their fine work that kept the telephone under their control for almost 100 years. A strong AT&T is part of the reason South Korea has Intenet speeds 200 times faster at half the price. AT&T doesn't care about anyone other than AT&T and have proven this over and over again whenever they can.
Basically, here AT&T and the wireless carriers are asking the vioctim to go out of a 2nd date with their rapest.
The US and the world would be a better place without AT&T. It's time we grow up and throw out the monoplies, and the congressmen they own.
It's far more clever than that. Normally the small business owner can appeal for help and fight. This is something that works for the public good to keep goernment in check, but they made even asking for help impossible. 1st rule of FISA Club is you don't talk about FISA Club. The act of mearly asking for help would land a person in prison.
This is a false argument. If a country is wrong in what it's doing, it's wrong. The US government is wrong in this case. They should have marrowed the search to specific accounts. They wanted to capture all communication, which cannot be justified without false statements. If it's wrong it's wrong, even if the person pointing it out is in a worse situation. People in far worse countries have always looked to the US to set the example. They have just as much right, if not more, to feel let down. We are not the leaders of the free world as much as we are the leaders of the mass spying on the free world.
Do we really have proof we can verify that the NSA is actually worth having around?
That was then. This is now. Most likely they spied on the USSR, and those people are retired or dead by now. Also, I'd like some verifiable proof, after all they are an agency that sees no need to tell the truth, before I go all gushy on how the agency of lies. If the proof shows that some people there had been amazing in the past then I would be sad for that since the NSA would have fallen since then, if not it's just gone from ineffective to horrible and ineffective.
