Episode 17: Josh Gets a Job! Net Neutrality, Facebook Places, Law School Haikus and More.
- Josh returns from his barzam recovery vacation in Mexico…and gets a job! With benefits!
- Don’t miss the pretty offensive segment on how Josh doesn’t trust secretaries and Laura thinks they all want to do something more than answer phones and schedule meetings.
In the News
- Net Neutrality
- Laura gets pissed about how people characterize the Internet today, and makes a remarkably pro-market argument (being the socialist that she is) defending the Google-Verizon legislative framework.
- Here’s a long-winded post Laura wrote for her law firm’s blog.
- Nice, thorough analysis by Tomsguide is here.
- See also the call for legislators to get to know Barbara van Schewick’s Internet Architecture & Innovation book.
- And to settle a little spat between Josh and Laura over whether cable companies are the most common option for broadband services, see how Laura is right, according to TelecomPaper: “The top cable broadband providers now have a 55 percent share of the overall market, a slight increase from 54 percent at the end of Q2 2009.”
- Facebook Places — dum dum DUMMMMM!! Learn also how to turn it off.
- Josh talks about an awesome(ly horrible), pervasive exploitable bug found in just about every Windows application?
You’re Doing It Wrong
