In a major policy shift, FCC will regulate Internet as a public utility (report) | VentureBeat | Business | by Mark Sullivan

In a major policy shift, FCC will regulate Internet as a public utility (report) | VentureBeat | Business | by Mark Sullivan | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

The Federal Communications Commission will later this week propose a plan to regulate the Internet in the way it might regulate a public utility.

Today the Internet is regulated as an “information service” under Title I in the Communications Law.

The New York Times quotes industry analysts, lobbyists, and former FCC staffers saying that the commission will reclassify broadband service as a Title II telecommunications service.

Reclassifying broadband as under Title II — a section of the Communications Act of 1934 that provides rules for “common carriers” — would give the FCC far broader powers to make sure Internet Service Providers (ISPs) don’t sell faster Internet service to well-monied bidders at the expense of smaller Internet companies.

Such a reclassification would be a major policy shift and would surely ignite a new round of political and legal battles on the issue.

“If true, this is excellent news and a vital step in the right direction,” Stanford law professor Barbara van Schewick in a blog post today. “… This is the only way to adopt meaningful network neutrality rules that will be upheld in court.” Read more: http://snip.ly/BpQk

Blogging in 2014 To Blow Your Readers Out of the Water

Blogging in 2014 To Blow Your Readers Out of the Water | Internet Presence | Scoop.it


Blogging in 2014 will be more challenging than ever. Have you formed a plan on how you will improve yourown blogging? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks and have come up with many ideas on things I’d like to do better in 2014.  Here are 9 things on my front burner for Inspire to Thrive’s blogging in 2014:

  1. Using Video More – We all have heard and read that video’s are becoming more and more important. If you listen / watch Ms. Ileane she will explain to you how to make the best videos and use of YouTube for your blog. I’m looking to start that for 2014 and purchase some inexpensive equipment to make better videos.
  2. Building The List More – Do you have an email list? Is it growing? I hope to grow mine more in 2014 with a better landing page or a better widget to capture readers attention. I’m torn with the use of pop-ups – I’d love to know your thoughts on that one!
  3. Publish Another eBook –  To help that list of mine grow, I want to publish another eBook or an updated version of my Tweeting Like It’s Second Nature. So much has changed since that first eBook on Twitter that I could easily update it with some time.

Why an Internet “slow lane” is a terrible idea | Net Neutrality

Why an Internet “slow lane” is a terrible idea |  Net Neutrality | Internet Presence | Scoop.it



As the Federal Communications Commission unveils its “Open Internet” proposal, Clay Shirky explains the regulation, politicking and jargon.

All eyes are on the Federal Communications Commission, as commissioner Tom Wheeler unveiled the FCC’s plan for “Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet.” The plan has had many Internet-centric companies up in arms, decrying any plan that might create a two-tiered Internet comprising “fast lanes” for companies that can pay, and “slow lanes” for those that don’t. (See an open letter to the FCC signed by companies including Amazon, Google and Microsoft.) It’s a complicated topic that involves regulation, politicking and jargon, so we called on technology writer and observer Clay Shirky to share his take on what’s going on. An edited version of our conversation follows.
