CloudFlare: Thoughts on Network Neutrality

CloudFlare published Thoughts on Network Neutrality, the FCC, and the Future of Internet Governance, which is one of the better articles on Net Neutrality I’ve read.

Bad things happen when lawyers and politicians step in too early to regulate technology markets that are still developing. In this case, the FCC not only may be stepping in too early — before we know what the actual, not just theoretical, problems they aim to regulate will be — but they were forced by previous court decisions and political realities to apply the rules written for traditional telephone networks rather than craft a new regulation specific to the unique nature of the Internet.

High Expectations

“High expectations are the key to everything.” – Sam Walton

Critics & Disruptors

“Critics are not the same as disruptors. Critics point out deficiencies, disruptors create solutions.”

Worlds 2015

Worlds 2015 has come and gone. It was as crazy, long, fun, exhausting, predictable, surprising, and great event as ever. Our friends at Cheer Daily posted the results. On to Summit (and Louisville, and Melissa’s wedding, and Kentucky Tryouts).

Lose Yourself

“The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.”

Slate: Male Rape in America

Slate published When Men Are Raped, pointing out the number or men and women sexually assaulted is almost equal.

This definition includes victims who were forced to penetrate someone else with their own body parts, either by physical force or coercion, or when the victim was drunk or high or otherwise unable to consent. When those cases were taken into account, the rates of nonconsensual sexual contact basically equalized, with 1.270 million women and 1.267 million men claiming to be victims of sexual violence.

Think & Act

“To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.” – Johann von Goethe
