You're talking about air gapping the wrong system.

There needs to be an air gap between executives and computers. They need to never be allowed to breach it, because they are completely fucking stupid. Sony is so inept I don't even get how they are allowed to do business. This is such a lack of security compliance for a for profit that I imagine compliance auditors are drooling by now.

Is it unique to them? not even remotely. Is it their own fault? about 99.9%. 56 hacks in 12 years is not a company who understands technology. It's a company with about as much technical knowhow as the musical artists they represent.

If it's destroying more jobs then it creates, then you need to fire the people who make false statements.

Then again, we're talking about the NY times, a site that long ago gave up on honest journalism and now resorts to getcha headlines.

The reality is that technology will always destroy more jobs than it creates if you're looking at an exclusively dishonest worldview. Technology will simply shift where the jobs are available, from (things that are now automated), to things such as managing the things that are automated.

Actually, this is very intentional. This means that there is no way to have net neutrality at all until probably 2018 or later, because we can't even begin lawsuits to confirm how it should work/how it exists until after the FCC even tries.

This confirms that wheeler has been in the pocket of vested interests the entire time.
