So a friend of mine sends me some emails about current events. "Here's something to blog about." I reply with the URL to my post about it that is up already. In the course of the email conversation, I realize he has no idea what I am talking about. His reply is below:
What I wrote: The FCC made a ruling on Comcast's network management (or P2P traffic interference).
His reply: Ok, got that.
There are 2 blogs that give an excellent view of the ruling - one is from OpenID and the other from Prof. Susan Crawford.
You don't mention their opinions or anything at all about the articles. They exist. Here is the link???
I wonder why they just don't use the Common Carriage definition.
Who is they? FCC? Comcast? Someone else? What is CC def?
If cable is a Common Carrier like telcos then stuff like DPI and traffic interference are a no-no.
DPI? I comprehend the sentence, I just don't understand what you mean. It is serious gleaning of info.
What? You mean Embarq and others are infringing on Common Carriage with something like NebuAd and Sandvine?
Okay, this is totally insider with no references for a newbie to latch hold of. In and out of my head... zoom!
No. Couldn't be. Not with the FCC around protecting the consumer and stuff. Oh, wait. ILEC's have a hall pass. I forgot.
Hall pass? ILECs?
Here is a quote from The Week......
This I got.
My friend used to program at IBM. He has been a computer geek for longer than me. (Well, I'm a telco geek which is different). So if he doesn't get what I am saying, maybe most of you don't either. I forget to translate to English. Sorry about that! I'll work on improving that.
