"Here’s What’s Different About Windows 10 for Windows 7 Users"

Very little to induce me to upgrade, but your mileage may vary.

"This is the best YouTube ad of all time — as voted by advertisers"

Actually, the top five. (#2 should be #1, but that's a quibble. They're both good.)

"Take the test: Could you get a job at Google?"

Not really a "test". More of a flowchart with questions.

"The impending surge for the University of Everywhere"

"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.”
