And I thought I was a technodope....

It being the end of the holiday, I thought I'd post a couple of odd items that I didn't get around to blogging earlier.
Fire Dog Lake has a truly frightening post about Senator Ted Stevens. This quote sums it up.
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially….
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.

It’s a series of tubes.

And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
As FDL said, "He is in charge of the net neutrality issue in the Senate. In charge." I mean shouldn't there be some kind of competency test, like a guy who doesn't even know the term for email and no understanding of how the internet works should NOT be in charge of such an important issue?

Boggles the mind and worse, it looks like they're going to sell out the internet to the telecoms whether we want them to or not.
