The Economist has some sensible things to say about net neutrality. I do hope that neither the proposal submitted by the FCC this week to regulate broadband as a public utility (because the cable companies and electricity companies are such a wonderful model to follow - NOT) nor the wish lists of the telecom companies are what we end up doing. Still waiting to see some good ideas from the government on this ...

India blocks GitHub and other sites because of ISIS propaganda. Huh? This seems a little like using a sledgehammer when the tool you actually need is a scalpel.

I'm enjoying the small improvements in Google Inbox over the Gmail app. Looking forward to seeing what else is in store for the product.

Gilead was wonderful. I'm really looking forward to Lila.
Marilynne Robinson's Gilead is one of my favorite books ever.  I have re-read some passages dozens of times, and keep a copy on my phone to savor periodically. So I was excited to see an interview with her in the Sunday New York Times

It wasn't as good as I hoped - authors rarely live up to their books - but it got better as it went along (read to the end!) and  there were a couple of gems:

"people are too poorly suited to life in the world for this to be the definitive human condition."

Lovely.

And she also quotes one of the many lovely lines from Gilead: "It all means more than I can tell you. So you must not judge what I know by what I find words for."
