Techdirt Podcast Episode 79: What's Next For Net Neutrality?

from the it-ain't-over dept

Net neutrality has a long and complicated history, and despite some recent victories, that story is far from over. This week, Mike is joined by resident broadband expert Karl Bode to discuss what's next for net neutrality, and what we need to do to fight for it.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Leigh go sit in a corner for 5 minutes for this

    Seriously what is wrong with you people today? Mike complains about the constant need to fight for civil right and Leigh says this is the 89th podcast even though it is the 79th podcast. WTF?

    Are you people getting enough sleep?

    The other major point that I don't see being made is the ability to influence politics. People got up in arms over accusations that Google was getting rid of bad searches about Hillary but what if Time Warner made all requests to right leaning news take a little bit longer, make youtube videos that are pro Trump just a little bit slower to load and more than likely SD while Hillary videos load with perfect clarity.

    Webpass wants local governments to make it happen

    Cities can open their local markets to competition. Webpass's policy proposal (webpass.net/franchise) declares internet service a public utility and opens up buildings and infrastructure to any franchised ISP. Susan Crawford tells it: https://backchannel.com/the-new-payola-deals-landlords-cut-with-internet-providers-cf60200aa9e9#.bmh pexz9n

    Hey You (profile), 12 Jul 2016 @ 4:58pm

    Techdirt Podcast Episode 79: What's Next For Net Neutrality?

    Great show and very informative.

    Only one problem. You guys have to improve your audio recording levels. The audio goes from barely audible to over modulation moment to moment. You guys have a great show but it is sad that you don't have the tech savvy/equipment to produce a quality product.

    Help please...
