“What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.”

September 7, 2010

The FCC continues to struggle over new guidelines, last week asking for further comments both on reclassifications of broadband services and on the “net neutrality” issue that deny Internet Service Providers the ability to favor certain forms of web traffic over others.  That the Commission itself is outlined in “Title 47: Telegraphs, Telephones, and Radiotelegraphs” of the US Code begins to explain how far behind the times – and the technology – the FCC really is.

Meanwhile, a posting on Gizmodo today announced that Justin Bieber has dedicated servers at Twitter: the 16-year-old singer/songwriter “uses 3% of Twitter resources at any moment.”  Get with the times, FCC – there ought to be a law.
