Public Outrage Over Net Neutrality Proposal Causes FCC Site To Crash

The Federal Communications Commission received so many comments on net neutrality Tuesday that its site crashed, making it necessary to extend the public comment period until midnight on Friday.

Is Anything On The Internet Real Anymore?

Is there anybody…out there? I promise I’m a real person asking this question and typing this article…but beyond that, I can’t promise much else about anything you or I see on the Internet. This article on ZDNet, “GCHQ’s dark arts: Leaked documents reveal online manipulation, Facebook, YouTube snooping,” confirms — beyond a shadow of any

To the right of the speakwrite, a small pneumatic tube for written messages, to the left, a larger one for newspapers; and in the side wall, within easy reach of Winston’s arm, a large oblong slit protected by a wire grating. This last was for the disposal


Netflix Could Be Classified As A 'Cybersecurity Threat' Under New CISPA Rules

The cybersecurity bill making its way through the Senate right now is so broad that it could allow ISPs to classify Netflix as a "cyber threat," which would allow them to throttle the streaming service's delivery to customers. It would be a backdoor way for ISPs to undermine net neutrality, and it's one of the


Prepare To Blame The Internet For Murder-Inducing Ghost Stories

I'm calling it here, right now.

Internet 2 Corporate Governance

With the FCC policy to allow a two-speed internet, the die is cast that corporate favoritism is the focus of government, as Internet 2 accelerates to replace the network that has served the public so well for decades.

Fighting For Internet Freedom

A previous article discussed Obama's war to destroy it. In 2008, he pledged support. He called "preserv(ing) the benefits of open competition on the Internet" essential. He lied saying so. He's waging war on free expression. He prioritizes intellectual property protection over Internet freedom. He's targeting it for elimination altogether. He appointed corporatist Tom Wheeler FCC


Details Revealed Of The UN’s Plans To Seize The Internet

Much has been made about the Obama administration’s plan to willingly forfeit control of the organization (ICANN) that administers the Internet is fueling justifiable concerns that the United nations will be controlling the Internet.

Gov Web Bots To Scour Internet For Hate Speech: “Could Potentially Criminalize Thoughts And Expressions”

With the capability to intercept every digital communication sent over the internet or telephone it’s no surprise that Big Brother is pushing to further expand its role in the lives of Americans.

Obama's War On Net Neutrality

In 2008, candidate Obama pledged "(s)upport (for) the principle of network neutrality to preserve the benefits of open competition on the Internet." He'd "take a back seat to no one," he said. He lied. He didn't surprise. He's a serial liar. He broke every major promise made. He heads a repressive homeland police state apparatus.


Search Engines Allowed To Block Political Websites In The Name Of 'Freedom Of Speech'

When a search engine is hauled before a judge, it's often because somebody, somewhere, objects to a particular search result. However, in the case of eight New Yorkers who tried (and failed) to sue China's biggest search engine, Baidu, it was the exact opposite: The plaintiffs were pro-democracy activists who accused Baidu of de-listing their
