The DC Circuit's long-awaited open Internet ruling is out, and it vacates the FCC's anti-blocking and anti-discrimination net neutrality provisions. Appears likely to re-ignite the open Internet debate in DC.

My take on the FTC-Google settlement: The winner is free speech on the Internet. In the New York Times today.
