Moyers: the net at risk

It’s been a crazy week and I could’ve used a cup of coffee like this!

Bill Moyers had a recent show on the net at risk. The hr-long video stream is quite well done and gives some very good historical context on the FCC, telecoms and the beginning of the internet. Read David Isenberg’s review of Moyers’ show. I highly recommend you take the hour to watch this.

Lessig had a couple of good posts this week on ‘net neutrality here and here.

And speaking of FCC and ‘net neutrality, Ed Felten has a highly readable explanation of the technical issues of net neutrality in the paper entitled, Nuts and Bolts of Network Neutrality (PDF) (and attached below). Felten knows what he’s talking about. He’s the director of the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University. He and his colleagues, Ariel J. Feldman and J. Alex Halderman, also recently published a report entitled, “Security Analysis of the Diebold AccuVote-TS Voting Machine.”
