The FCC’s net neutrality proposal: What does it mean for you, and the internet?

Net neutrality, a rather utopian view of it
Yesterday morning, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) moved forward with a new proposal that is intended to safeguard net neutrality. Other news sources are reporting that this new proposal will allow ISPs to create ‘internet fast lanes’ for web services (Netflix, etc.) that stump up the extra cash, and thus implicitly creating an internet slow lane for every company that doesn’t pay up. In reality, the FCC’s proposal is actually a lot more complex than that. Read on for more details of the FCC’s new Open Internet proposal, and how it will actually affect you.

Google+ Daddy Vic Gundotra Bails


Vic Gundotra, who moved Google into the social media world, first with the ill-fated Buzz and then with Google+, on Thursday announced his departure from the company. “Now is the time for a new journey,” he wrote, fittingly, on Google+. The announcement was laced with the usual praise for colleagues accompanying such statements. It was met with an equally platitude-laden response from Google cofounder and CEO Larry Page, who said Gundotra “built Google+ from nothing.”
