Machines cannot replace humans in a human way. We lose something when we think they can. That does not mean machines do not play a role in our lives. They do when chosen and used in thoughtful ways. The challenge is being thoughtful.

Dems Seek Investigation of FCC Chair Over Sinclair/Tribune | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable

Dems Seek Investigation of FCC Chair Over Sinclair/Tribune | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Some high-profile Hill opponents of the proposed Sinclair-Tribune merger, or at least of the way the FCC is handling that review and other related media ownership decisions, want FCC Chairman Ajit Pai investigated.

An FCC spokesperson called it part of an effort by Democrats to target Sinclair over its perceived political views, and branded the allegations a baseless attempt to distract from the merits of the deal

Rep. Frank Pallone (R-N.J.), ranking member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee, joined by Overnight and Government Reform Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) have asked FCC inspector general to investigate whether the chairman has "taken improper actions to benefit Sinclair Broadcast Group".

This Week in Comcast: How big of a threat does municipal broadband pose? | Michelle Caffrey | Philadelphia Business Journal

This Week in Comcast: How big of a threat does municipal broadband pose? | Michelle Caffrey | Philadelphia Business Journal | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Comcast is amid an identity switch.

In the age of cord-cutting, the Philadelphia-based media giant is distancing its future from the cable industry by putting its broadband services front and center, with executives saying the ever-growing business segment has become the “epicenter” of customer relationships. And it has plenty of runway ahead.

But the high-speed internet business has looming threats of its own.

On Tuesday, residents in two cities will cast votes that could pave the way for municipal broadband, moves that one study says could cost Comcast tens of millions in revenue a year.

According to a report in Ars Technica, The Institute for Local Self-Reliance’s Community Broadband Networks Initiative — which is supportive of municipal broadband, when local governments build out their own broadband networks and treat the service as a utility along the lines of water and sewage treatment — added up potential losses Comcast could face if those two cities, Seattle and Fort Collins, Colo., built out their own systems.

Ignored By Big Telecom, Detroit's Marginalized Communities Are Building Their Own Internet | Kaleigh | Rorgers | Motherboard.Vice.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Being stuck without access to the internet is often thought of as a problem only for rural America. But even in some of America’s biggest cities, a significant portion of the population can’t get online.

Take Detroit, where 40 percent of the population has no access to the internet—of any kind, not only high speed—at home, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Seventy percent of school-aged children in the city are among those who have no internet access at home. Detroit has one of the most severe digital divides in the country, the FCC says.

“When you kind of think about all the ways the internet affects your life and how 40 percent of people in Detroit don’t have that access you can start to see how Detroit has been stuck in this economic disparity for such a long time,” Diana Nucera, director of the Detroit Community Technology Project, told me at her office.

FCC moves to abandon rural telephone | Sean McLaughlin | AccessHumboldt.net

Access Humboldt joins opposition to FCC's move to push early retirement of copper telephone networks

Along with a broad range of consumer, rural, elderly, labor, civil and human rights, and low-
income organizations, Access Humboldt joined a letter to Federal Communications Commission chair Ajit Pai expressing concerns about his proposal for early retirement of legacy copper telephone networks serving large swaths of rural territory, including much of Humboldt County and the North Coast region.

Access Humboldt's executive director Sean McLaughlin said: "We join this effort to ensure that rural communities are not relegated to second class status in the digital future. Reasonable consumer protections are necessary to ensure that profit seeking corporations deliver reliable, robust and resilient telecom services to every community. We have a long history and a legacy social contract that has paid these private corporations a pretty sum to meet local needs and interests - having collected those funds, profiteers now seek to renege on their obligations as 'carriers of last resort.'"

The group's letter (online here https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/11090039324560/Joint%20Wireline%20Broadband... and attached below) notes that: "Contrary to the proceeding’s stated purpose, the radical rule changes in the draft Report and Order will make it more difficult to achieve the very goals the Commission aims to achieve."

CTIA: Commercial Wireless Should Be Drone Home | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable

CTIA: Commercial Wireless Should Be Drone Home | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Commercial wireless operators are telling the government that their licensed networks should be used for drone communications.

Monday (Nov. 11), CTIA, the wireless association, is calling on the Federal Aviation Administration to "to recognize that commercial wireless networks offer the best platform to support the commercial drone market."

That is in a white paper being released in advance of the FAA's expected formal rule-making in early 2018 on whether commercial licensed spectrum, unlicensed spectrum, or a dedicated band is the best route to the widespread deployment of commercial drones, and what rules should apply.

Not surprisingly, CTIA argues that its networks offer the right conditions--availability, reliability, and security to keep those drones flying safely.
