FCC reportedly voting on new net neutrality rules in February

FCC chair Tom Wheeler is reportedly planning to vote on a new net neutrality proposal in February. The Washington Post reports that Wheeler is planning to internally circulate an updated version of the Open Internet rules he’s been working on for almost a year, with hopes of getting them passed in a February 26th meeting. There’s no clue as to what these rules might entail, but the Post paraphrases analysts and officials close to the FCC, saying that Wheeler is planning “far more aggressive regulation” than he originally proposed.

Police can gather evidence by making fake Instagram accounts, court rules

Your Instagram friend could secretly be a police officer, and that’s totally legal, at least in New Jersey. In an opinion from earlier this month, district court judge William Martini responded to a request by Daniel Gatson, who is accused of running a lucrative jewelry theft ring that was busted by the FBI in 2013.

FCC pushes back deadline for people to weigh in on net neutrality rules

The US Federal Communications Commission is giving people nearly a week more to weigh in Chairman Tom Wheeler’s proposal for a new net neutrality framework. Today the FCC said people have until September 15th (a month from now) to reply to comments made by others as part of an earlier phase that wrapped up July 18th. The previous deadline (September 10th) would have given people a month, however the FCC’s site was slammed in the beginning of the process and unable to handle the influx of traffic, causing the original public comment deadline to get pushed back.

Sound on the web. I know. Historically, these two things haven’t gone together very well. Most of us have been burned when visiting a site whose creator has deemed, most probably as an afterthought, that a background bed of awful electro-jazz would be an excellent way to enhance the mood. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can do things differently.
