Today the five FCC commissioners will meet. On their agenda is consideration of regulation to encourage “an open Internet”. A vocal pro-“net neutrality” group is camping on FCC’s doorstep; their website is occupythefcc.com.
What can fix the corrupt FCC?
To borrow from Mr. Shakespeare, ”The first thing we do, let’s kill remove all the lawyers.” At least, let’s remove all the industry lobbyists and political fundraisers, starting with FCC chairman Tom Wheeler. Replace the lawyers and lobbyists with engineers. Second, let’s prohibit former FCC employees from immediate employment in the industry that they regulated. Former FCC chairman Michael Powell, son of General Colin Powell, now heads CTIA (Cellular Telecommunication & Internet Association).
Then again, maybe Shakespeare had the right idea.
