The Neutrality Network – Words That Matter As I write these words, the FCC has just issued draft regulations abolishing the rules meant to secure “network neutrality” on the internet. Those regulations themselves were a surprising victory in the second term of the Obama administration. Obama had made neutrality a critical part of his first campaign. But it was a former industry lobbyist turned FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, along with an extraordinary deputy, Gigi Sohn, who finally pressed a constitutionally resistant FCC to adopt a substantial body of federal regulations that would go a long way toward securing for the future of the internet the kind of competitive platform that defined the very best of its past. Those regulations were astonishingly popular — with the users of the internet and those who developed content and applications.

Is Google Making Us Stupid? - Nicholas Carr Illustration by Guy Billout "Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop, Dave?” So the supercomputer HAL pleads with the implacable astronaut Dave Bowman in a famous and weirdly poignant scene toward the end of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Act now to save the internet as we know it – Tim Berners-Lee In just two days, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote on a proposal that would fatally undermine net neutrality in the US.

But Cambridge Analytica shouldn’t act as a diversion from the real bad guy in this story: Facebook. It is mystifying that as his company regulates the flow of information to billions of human beings, encouraging certain purchasing habits and opinions, and monitoring people’s interactions, Mark Zuckerberg is invited to give lectures at Harvard without being treated with due scepticism. We have now reached the point where an unaccountable private corporation is holding detailed data on over a quarter of the world’s population.
