okay, it’s been about 3 weeks since i’ve written anything, but i’m going to try to write a bunch more in the coming days. been thinking about a lot of things lately across the board, have a trip coming up to Tokyo, and just a lot going on. so watch this space.
in the meantime, here’s a bit of a speech by Ted Stevens, my favorite cranky, crazy Senator from Alaska about the Internet. it would be really funny if he weren’t in charge of the committee who’s regulating it.
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially…
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.
It’s a series of tubes.
And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
