I still love internet on the plane. Just figured out how to get it free for an hour for all my various devices (T-Mobile phone + Hootoo Tripmate Wireless router).

So Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, etc. want to be able to charge the companies behind youtube/netflix/pandora/etc. money in order to prioritize their sites. Basically “if you pay us, we’ll make users be able to access your site faster and every other site that doesn’t pay us will be slower”. The idea is instead of giving us home users full speed access to any website, speeds will be determined by how much that website pays for. This is bad because if you were trying to create a website to compete against the big boys, you wouldn’t stand a chance since you can’t pay Comcast/AT&T/Verizon/etc. to make your site just as fast as the big boys. Oh, and Comcast/AT&T/Verizon would definitely allow full speed to their own competing video and music services. Imagine if Netflix didn’t pay Comcast, so now watching netflix while on comcast is slow and not very fun, but Comcast’s own video streaming service is nice and fast, who would you go with? We need to make sure the internet is kept neutral, that everyone gets the speed they pay for to whatever site they want to visit. No playing favorites/pay to play/fast lane junk.

Does anybody know why, or can hazard a good guess, why certain images/memes on facebook are videos now? It’s a video with a single image and no sound. It’s like they’re trying to evade some Facebook image filters…
