The Internet Must Go

Excellent mockumentary about how and why Internet service providers such as Verizon, AT&T, Time Warner and Comcast are pushing to eliminate or suppress the net neutrality.

Over the years they've spent billions to build the pipes and towers that bring Americans the Internet. Today they face a crisis, there's just too much traffic. (Un)fortunately they have a solution - the Internet as it exists today must go.

Instead of everything going at the same speed, the way it does now, they will create a fast lane and the slow lane on the Internet. Giant companies who can pay them more will be in the fast lane where will be easier for people to find them. Everyone else can take the slow road. They'll also create innovative new ways to charge Internet users for the sites they want.

What's stopping them? Well you've probably heard a lot of hype about net neutrality and keeping the Internet open. What do those buzz words really mean? On an open Internet they're supposed to treat everything equally whether it is profitable for them are not. This stands in the way of their freedom to make the money they think they deserve, but the public wants the Internet to stay open.

That's why they need a market researcher (John Wooley) to get out there and talk to people and help them figure out how to sell their new vision so they can eliminate net neutrality and reach their maximum profit potential.

Basically is the way the Internet's been since the beginning. You wanna get FOX news and you wanna get a friend's blog at the exact same speed. And what certain Internet service providers have talked about now is charging for faster lane and the only people that could really pay for the faster lane would be corporations.

"As the track progresses, the song becomes fainter and the news report louder."

Well, news report certainly got louder, but song did not get fainter.

Well personally I'd argue that since the news report gets louder, the song sounds like it became fainter.
I thought it sounds like a real news report too.

Story
Introduction
to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting. -e.e. cummings

It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. - Niccolò Machiavelli

***************************************************
Native Austinite. Well educated.. Always learning more in my own way. Strong-willed and opinionated. Avid reader. Love to laugh..

I believe in making a difference. I believe in making myself a better person.. in my own eyes, not the eyes of society.

Mainstream society, and the social mores that it professes to hold as "normal," "average," etc. is all hogwash as far as I'm concerned.

I am very much a "trail blazer" and I live my life that way.

If you want to know more.. ask me :)

***************************************************
I want my life to have more highs than lows, cherishing fond memories with warmth, learning from less pleasant memories, and making a positive difference in the world.. preferably on and with the next generation. So long as I know I made a difference, my name doesn't have to be "attached" to whatever it is I do.

Whether I believe in the Afterlife is irrelevant, what matters is what I do now.

I love the place! After only 2-3 visits two waiters already knew iced tea is my "signature" drink; when they see me drinking coffee, they ask "No tea?" I also get a smile and wave from them every time I see them! As for the food .. OMG! I love the carne asada, tacos, enchiladas camarones .. I was a little disappointed with menudo, but will give it another chance .. not fair to use 40+ yrs @ Joe's Bakery as a comparison + I didn't order extra meat like I do at Joe's. It's a great place .. clean, friendly, and often packed!! I also like seeing it frequented by the neighbors not the hipster types.

I often wondered if it's part of (belongs with) other Austin Pizza locations .. is soo much better, infinite possibilities, not your "pizza joint" atmosphere either .. I even <3 the building! Need to make time to go there again, if only wasn't so far away.

Tacos definitely a thumbs down.. names more exciting than flavor. Far as I'm concerned, their fare went up in flames.

Although it's been a few years since I've been there, I was never disappointed. Liked their specials and their pepperoni pizza always a favorite! Pepperoni seems to have kick to taste that no other pizza biz has.

I love the culture-inspired paintings! Takes me back to my vacations in the Yucatan Peninsula & Mexico City DF!! Oaxacan cafe is aromatic, bold yet strangely relaxing too. Great food and reasonable prices.
