Internet & Networking When Google and Verizon unveiled their joint net neutrality policy proposal, in which the FCC would play a central role in governing the internet, I mentioned how the the FCC might not be the kind of institution you'd want to hand over control to over your pornography life line (also known as the internet). Over the past few days, the FCC pretty much reiterated just why they are no the right people to govern the web.

Of course there's nothing in that article about the internet. All I use the article for is to illustrate just what kind of an organisation the FCC really is, i.e., one you don't want overseeing the internet.


Oh, right! Yes I definitely don't want to see the FCC overseeing the Internet! Absolutely. That's a nightmare scenario as far as I'm concerned.

Edit: And yes, I think Net Neutrality would indeed open up a huge can of worms as far as FCC oversight on the Internet.
