2/26 Susan Crawford: The Fight Against Telecom Monopolies

Law Professor Susan Crawford, author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, explained why the Internet should be treated like a electricity, why Wired access is essential for success in today’s economy, why private companies have no incentive to provide universal access, the industry push back against her ideas, why market concentration is so high in the wireless market and educating the public on the need for an communications policy.

On The Better Half: two Congressional Republicans come out for marriage equality, voters overwhelmingly think Republicans are out of touch including many Republicans, Boing works to contain its flammable batteries on its Dreamliner Jets, Random Rush and DKNY steals a photographers work and that is just the beginning of their ridiculous conduct.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
