"3 Charts That Show The FCC is Full of Malarkey on Net Neutrality and Title II"

Nick Gillespie puts paid to the "We need the government to protect Internet" argument.

As important, think about how the delivery of the Internet has evolved, first from a university-based system to early commercial providers using phone lines, then to various types of fixed connections (such as DSL and coaxial cable and increasingly fiber and mobile services). Does anyone think that in 2035 we'll be getting the Internet via a cable that pops up in your living room and also provides televison programs? What increased regulation almost always does is freeze into place existing structures and business models. Certainly that's the case with telephony, where the heavily regulated Bell monopoly fought hard, and for a long time very successfully against all sorts of innovation, from alternative methods of long-distance delivery to accessories such as answering machines to letting people own (rather than rent) their phones. “Communism is a drag, man," Lenny Bruce riffed. "It’s like one big telephone company.”

"A 13-Year-Old Made A Revolutionary Invention Out Of Legos And Now Intel Is Investing In His Company"

I can't decide whether this is good news or bad news. Good news: we have a country where a 13-year-old with a terrific idea can be honored and rewarded for it (and attract investment from one of the world's largest companies).

Bad news: where were all the adults? Why did it fall to a 13-year-old to think of this?

"2014 is ending, but this wave of technology disruptions is just beginning"

Manufacturing, finance, personalized health care, energy, communications: big changes are afoot.
