An internet that is fragmented by political, legal, and technical boundaries would throttle the animating purpose of the International Bill of Human Rights, while an indivisible and global internet is able to facilitate such goals.
By the end of 2014, America will have been charged about $400 billion by the local phone incumbents, Verizon, AT&T and CenturyLink, for a fiber optic future that never showed up.
The Internet is the model of a competitive market particularly because our referees have a narrowly defined and limited role. Let's keep it that way. We enjoy watching the competitors, not the referees.
Until now, consumers have been able to use any device and access any content on the Internet on an equal basis. Those protections could all go away, depending on what the FCC decides. What the companies want, it turns out, is no rules at all -- or at least rules so weak and vague that they can't be enforced in any meaningful way.

Buying the right homes which appeal to their lifestyles and where they will be employed should keep occupancy and rents high.
God has been stalking me. On the Internet. Now mind you, I think it could possibly be a God Fraud, (He spells his name Godd) but I still find it enormously flattering and will NOT get a restraining order.
I hear this phrase frequently, and think, are these times inherently different? Larger than life? Miraculous? Or like the great flood, globally destructive? Whether you're religious or not, 'Biblical' evokes images of a strategic shift.
Without Net Neutrality, women's and girls' voices online will be threatened. Already, major media's structural inequality continually leaves women and girls out.
At the time, I thought these incidents would ruin my life. I thought they would completely destroy my relationships with friends and family and that I would be cast out. When you're in high school the mistake of divulging information to the wrong person can seem disastrous.
