Not too many apparently after I searched. Oh well, cliches are dead I guess.
The FCC voted today to regulate the Internet as a public utility by using common carrier rules. This makes absolutely no sense for a bunch of servers networked together, which at its base, is what the Internet is.
Not too far in the future I’m sure I’ll need a license for this stupid blog about nothing and there will be so-called “community standards” or “decency standards” applied to the content on the Web so I can no longer use words like “fuck” or “shit” and God forbid someone show some boobs. Not that I use those words or post anyone’s nude pics anyway but I reserve the right when the mood strikes me.
It probably also won’t take long to control political speech. Web sites are easy and cheap to start and costs next to nothing for people to access them. The long standing cry to “get money out of politics” will require a serious clamp down on political advocacy on the Web. It won’t be “legal content”.
What we now have in the world are separate intranets instead of an Internet. Each country has their own Intranet that connects to each other country forming the craptastic government controlled Internet as it exists today. And we thought it would only happen in China.
God damn it do things really suck lately.
I should have named Godfrey “Johnny Depp” instead. What a cry baby! http://www.wallsave.com/wallpapers/1024×768/people-crying/51924/people-crying-cry-baby-poster-movie-desktop-johnny-depp-51924.jpgRead More
My typical Monday morning. http://dilbert.com/strip/2015-02-16
On my way to see who wins the Godfrey lottery… Or loses depending on perspective.
