We keep hearing that if corporations have to pay more taxes, the economy will suffer, because they won't hire more workers. Well, if you hadn't noticed, for the last five years they've hardly been on a hiring spree.
There has been a great deal of political sturm und drang in political circles about the yawning income inequality gap, which is now the highest its ...

It is now clear that while Governor Christie is embroiled in 'bridgegate', which is about clogging and blocking of traffic movement over a bridge, another scandal is brewing.

The beauty of the Internet is that it essentially levels the playing field for small businesses by giving them the potential to reach audiences with low-cost marketing methods.
Forget about the NSA and the phone networks. There's another secret network you should know about. I call it "special excess," though it's known in the telecom industry as "special access." You won't hear about these secret wires.

The idea that those companies that run big telecommunications networks shouldn't be able to play favorites is dead, at age 80. First enacted in the 1934 Communications Act, the principle was very simple. Telephone companies shouldn't be able to discriminate among the traffic they carry. The U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C.

Companies will rush to change the Web and line their own pockets at our expense -- creating new tolls for app makers, expensive price tiers for popular sites, and fast lanes open only to the few content providers that can afford them. It didn't have to be this way.
The awards are presented by a distinguished panel of experts (me, myself and I) to unsuspecting folks and companies in the technosphere who may -- or may not -- deserve them. And, for the first time in 18 years, we have a triple award winner.
