Watch Out for that Speed Bump

In the debate over Net Neutrality and Universal Service, the idea for tiered pricing of broadband usage is often a point of contention. When I entered the debate I was against tiered pricing. However, today I hold a different view....

IP Reflections

In attempting to better understand the impact of the FCC rules change regarding InterCarrier Compensation (ICC) and Universal Service Funding (USF), I found myself lost in a sea of IP related missives. Ignoring the obviously flawed reasoning behind the rules...

Unleash the Hounds

Odd that in the same week we have very differing aspects of the value of social media and both relate to emergency situations. During the current crisis in Britain, social media is actively used to promote, invite and expand the...

The FCC is Obscuring Intent with the Third Way

Today is my final review of the "Third Way" as proposed by Julius Genachowski, FCC Chairman. While we have discussed Sections 201 and 202, I do not plan to spend time examining the impact of Section 208, which gives...

To the Beat of a Different Drum

Friday, we had Alaskan King Crab Quiche and Sunday, I served cannelloni. While there are many versions of cannelloni, I made my filling using smoked pork loin and cured Virginia ham. I chose those particular meats over Italian sausage...

A Cautious Approach to Net Neutrality, A Third Way

Saving Net Neutrality with Finesse or Brute Force

An important lesson learned in my youth was if I use the right tool to repair something then brute force would seldom be necessary. In fact, most of the time using brute force resulted in additional damage. This begat...

Broadband Access, a Matter of Public Policy?

Julius Genachowski, chair of the FCC, was quite pleased to announce plans to transfer billions of dollars from the USF to develop broadband in rural and underserved areas of the country. More eagerly, the current FCC wants to connect...

An Odd Pairing, Pork and Clams, Obama and Net Neutrality

Two thoughts come to mind as I look back on this weekend's dining delights. First, it is good that the Super Bowl comes once a year as I always prepare too much fried food. Second, remembering one of your...

Zero out of 7291

I was not surprise to see we batted a big fat zero when it came to being mentioned in President Obama's State of the Union Address on Wednesday. I expected that. Given two critical factors, what the politicians and...

The State of Telecom

Tonight President Obama will give his first State of the Union Address. Most of the address will be about subjects driven by the politicians and media: The war in Afghanistan, the withdrawal from Iraq, the now on life support...

Peek-a-boo Julius Genachowski

The Senate Hearings Have Begun

Monday I changed my position and now support tiered broadband pricing. There is enough existing or potential competition in urban areas to support this pricing model without dampening access to or the adoption rate of high-speed broadband. However, in...

A Mouthful: Grilled Butterflied Chicken, CTO, CIO and FCC

Okay so the weekend was kind of a repeat of Easter, a little bit of rain and a little cool. Perhaps, then it was okay that I repeated my first dish of the year. My wife asked for Crab...

Italian Lasagna and an FCC Update

We will get to the Italian Lasagna but first, I missed the mark on Monday. I was so focused on getting my Valentine's Day meal resolved that I missed the announcement of a potential FCC Chairman. Right after I...
