180


Back in May of 2014, BRT did a post titled The Net as PUBLIC UTILITY, a piece discussing the importance of net neutrality and, in part, on Tom Wheeler's weasel words regarding NN that sounded like it came directly from the NCTA, which is the cable industry's largest lobbying group.  where he served as president prior to his appointment to the FCC.

Fast forward to February, 2015 and the same Tom Wheeler does a 180 that surely warms the cockles of yours truly's heart to the max. :)


It gets better:





Wouldn't it be nice if the supremes did the same thing regarding law and how it should apply to the public good just as Tom Wheeler did in reclassifying the net as a Public Utility given just how vital the web has become to civilization as we mover ever further into the 21st century.
