Wow just wow. I understand the need to protect content and individual creations. But this is a very slippery slop.
Here's the bad news: the World Wide Web Consortium is going ahead with its plan to add DRM to HTML5, setting the stage for browsers that are designed to disobey their owners and to keep secrets from them so they can't be forc...

OK. If there is one video you watch this month, this should be it: it is 13 minutes of your life which will be well-spent. Because at the end of it, you will actually know what is going on with net neutrality, (or as he calls it, "preventing cable company fuckery") and exactly what the sleazy deals are behind it, but you will also be laughing your ass off, because John Oliver is hilarious.

Net neutrality is kind of amazing, because destroying it manages to screw over almost everyone.

Small companies get screwed over because they can't afford to pay off the cable companies to get access to their customers. Oh, you had an idea for a business using the Internet? Well, I hope your business plan includes a few million bucks to pay for your customers to be allowed to reach your site.

Big companies get screwed over because they're shaken down for (literally) billions of dollars by cable companies -- "That's a nice business you have there. Pity if someone were to make sure your customers could never reach you again" -- and that's assuming that the cable companies don't see them as competitors (if, say, they were doing something like streaming video...), at which point those companies could just shut them off outright.

People who use the Internet get screwed because the sites they want to connect to can't pay these extra fees, or are just being shut down outright by the cable companies. What, you wanted to watch a movie tonight? Sorry. Maybe you should have rented it from Comcast, instead, sucker!

In fact, nearly everyone in the entire country gets screwed over by this. So why, you ask, would the government be considering such a thing? 

Well. There is one group who doesn't get screwed over by it at all. Your friends and mine at Comcast, Time-Warner, Verizon, and AT&T. But don't worry; they have your best interests at heart. And the service guy will be there between 2 and 6. 

Really.

Honest.

By far my favorite. Of course Tom Baker was my first Doctor so that would explain it.
 
The 4th & 5th Doctors. I would complete the whole set but unfortunately I don't have any high enough quality pictures in which to cut out the rest.
