Had to share this to be able to write a comment. Not sure why +Koushik Dutta  does not allow comments.  A bit annoying, Mr. Dutta.

At any rate, I've been back and forth on the issue of "to Title II or not to Title II" and Net Neutrality and all, but the more I think about it the more I'm starting to fall on the side of reclassification as Title II.
The main argument against reclassification is the fear of reduced infrastructure investment, and the fear of general Government regulation.
As for the reduced infrastructure investment, have no fear. Where there is money there will be investment, and believe me, there is LOTS of money.
As for the Government??? Well, we've been sidestepping them for years. No reason to think that won't be the case here.

So, Now, I'm finally off the fence and stand FOR reclassification to Title II. 
Screw you Comcast.

As a side, technical question. Does anyone understand how Comcast is actually able to prevent the PS4 from getting HBO Go? I mean, can you not download the app? Not get the stream? How are they doing it?
 
This is is the kind of crap title 2 fixes. There are anti net neutrality idealists who seem to think the free market should decide everything: in a free market a multibillion dollar company is going to take a piss on the individual consumer due to the lack of organized influence and negotiation power. Knee jerking against any and all regulations is short sighted.

No blocking: Broadband providers can’t block access to “legal content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices.”

Comcast subscribers can't watch HBO Go on PlayStation 4. The app arrived on Sony's console Tuesday — and let me tell you, PlayStation owners had been dreaming of and awaiting that day for months....

Occasionally, while perusing this or that, what used to be called Web-surfing, one finds little gems. This is one of those gems that I'm sure many of you will find interesting.
With the current news concerning Title II and The FCC getting involved, I found this article to be particularly enlightening. It's written with the casual reader in mind. Not directed at economic majors.

This article provides a broad overview of the case for Title II reclassification. It was aimed specifically at a handful of senior citizen Republicans who worked with me during a recent campaign — good people who don't know too much about computers. If you are more technical-minded, ...

I am struggling here with finding the words to pay tribute to Mr. Nimoy, today, on the day of his passing from this world. How can I describe what an inspiration he has been to me and to countless other "nerds" out there who believe logic and reason are the cornerstones of being an intelligent being. I have no doubt that my life is what it is today, thanks in very large part to the life Mr. Nimoy gave to Mr. Spock. His passing today has been like a rock to my head, an arrow to my chest. He will be deeply missed and the world a much sadder, less thoughtful place with his loss.
Mr. Nimoy, Mr. Spock, I thank you for your life and your work. May you live long and prosper.

Oh my!
 
For many conservatives, resolving issues of faith and science can be tricky. What excuse do Democrats have? Maybe someone at the New York Times can find out.

This is the best Pizza in California. They are a restaurant, not a fast food/Pizza joint. If you want the best and a good price then this is your place. If you want fast, cheap cardboard covered in cheese sauce then get something else.
