…but perhaps the most fundamental is a simple misconception, one that persists in the work of the FCC but also of proponents and opponents of network neutrality. It is the false distinction between what they call “edge providers” (YouTube) and “end users” (people who watch videos on YouTube).
I really wish Obama would remove chairmanship from Wheeler. And stop appointing lobbyists.
UPDATE: We made it! As of right now, there are 105,628 signatures on the petition. Thank you! Can’t wait to hear what the white house says on this.
Please sign this petition! I’m having trouble believing that it’s taken this long for people to take a minute to sign it. Is the level of apathy about this so great that no one thinks anything they do will make a difference? Or perhaps it’s more “I haven’t done anything wrong, so I have nothing to hide.” Wrong. Do you want privacy? Do you want strangers to know what’s in your medical records? Your bathroom medicine cabinet? Your bedroom?
Please help the courts force the TSA to consider public comments on full body scanners.
Year ago, EPIC sued the TSA over full body scanners (I was one of the plantiffs), demanding that they follow their own rules and ask for public comment. The court agreed, and ordered the TSA to do that. In response, the TSA has done nothing. Now, a year later, the court has again ordered the TSA to answer EPIC’s position.
