Campaign: Workshop--Speech, Democratic Engagement, and the Open Internet

VA.gov gave me the idea for WebCams for proof of documents.

If more Government agencies had WebCams, they would be able to show proof of ID cars and paperwork right there on the WebCam to be able to verify a persons credentials.

Campaign: Reasonable Network Management

Opt Out of E-mail from OpenInternet.gov

Hi!

I set my profile to stop e-mail to my account from posts to this site. I still get them. Now I can't find how to even change the settings. Nor do I see how to contact OI without going to the FCC. Help.

Campaign: Workshop--Technical Advisory Process on Broadband Network Management

Overview: Networks and the new Vision

We Americans are some of the most inovative people when it comes to Tech, but lacking when it comes to acutally using CURRENT tech. Copper, instead of fiber. Servers, sorely lacking in the ability to accept the current load of traffic, still being used waaaaay after their EOL (Read: End of Life). What is needed is a network that is built from the ground up for the future and the backing to do so*. Fiber (or a similarly ...more »

Is An Open Internet is Essential for America, For Free Speech

Is An Open Internet is Essential for America, For Free Speech, WE PAY FOR EVERY THING ELSE! psychopaths? The answer could be “yes” if you use a definition which labels individuals who are often intelligent and highly charismatic, but display a chronic inability to feel guilt, remorse or anxiety about any of their actions. Tack on the use of violence and intimidation to control others and satisfy selfish needs and the ...more »

Follow Canada's lead: innovate first to solve congestion problems

Canada has just implemented sensible net neutrality rules, and one of the major ideas is that anybody who seeks to slow down the internet, or complains that their portion of the network is overburdened must prove that there is absolutely no technological solution that would involve bolstering network infrastructure that can solve the problem, before they can do anything to limit anything.

 

That's a very good start.

If they can...

Finland just passed a law requiring ISPs to provide connectivity to every Finn. If they can, why can't we?

Campaign: International Lessons

Must learn from our mistakes and other countries success

First off, we must learn from our mistakes the last 8 years under the Bush Administration where deregulations allowed for the duo-opolization of the broadband Internet access market. As we abandoned regulatory commitments that benefited consumers and led to increased competition and innovation other countries kept their commitments and we fell behind other nations in broadband Internet penetration (will go into this ...more »

Campaign: Copyright Issues

copyright lasts too long

The term of copyrights should be shortened - ideas need not last in private hands for generations. The public needs to build on society's development of ideas, and slamming the door shut on usage of works by refusing to release it to the public domain after a reasonable time is costing our culture. We would not have the problem of "orphan" books and issues for google and others if a reasonable copyright term was reintroduced. ...more »

Campaign: Copyright Issues

Copyright is going away.

If we look at the new metaphor, this cloud metaphor we see that society is moving away from a consensus mentality. Non sense like peer review (mediocrity enforcement) is going away. Expert worship is going away. We are not falling into a sensate malaise but raw experience will be more sought after than consensus. The state of knowledge will be changing so quickly, or at least the relevant state that authorship and ...more »

exclusive content deals: is this a problem?

don't let people like fox and rupert murdoch start to limit what certain search engines can list. I don't mind this for fox, exactly, because i'd prefer fewer people are able to find their content, to be honest. what worries me though, is that they will set a precedent where there will be discrimination against search engines who want to be able to index as much content as possible. if more companies start to charge ...more »
