Comment STOP measuring jitter, packet loss, upload speed! (Score -1, Troll) 47

How the hell we are still "measuring" throughput, packet loss and RTT in 2011???? My wife want to know if she can "WATCH YOUTUBE" , "SEND A PICTURE VIA EMAIL", "PLAY HER FAVORITE SHOW ON TV". It's like the PC. People don't care about how many GHz, GB, Mcolors the box has. They care about what they can do... It's like for cars: who's interested in checking the engine, knowing which brakes and knowing the maximum speed... It's really time to get rid of this sticky measures...

Burning Man Responds To EFF's Criticism of Policy 210

Briden writes "Earlier this week, we discussed the EFF's criticism of the Burning Man Photo Policy. Burning Man has now responded at length on their own blog. Here's an excerpt: 'In fact, there are but two essential reasons we maintain these increased controls on behalf of our community: to protect our participants so that images that violate their privacy are not displayed, and to prevent companies from using Burning Man to sell products. We don't remove images from pages just because they criticize us (I've never been involved in taking down an image from an editorial blog criticizing Burning Man, and it's certainly not because there haven't been any!). We're also not at all interested [in] preventing participants from sharing their personal imagery or impressions of the event on third party sharing sites in a noncommercial manner, so long as they observe the concerns about privacy and commercialism. We're delighted to see people sharing videos, stories, and pictures on our official Facebook page, and we know that it, along with Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, etc. are representative of the way many of us share personal imagery in the digital age.'"
