The Verge has published an interview with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler which touches on net neutrality, software defined radio, software defined networking, zero-rating cell-phone data plans, opening up the cablebox to 3rd party access and how his experience as a telecom lobbyist has inured him to lobbyist tactics. In recent days, Wheeler has suggested that, contrary to convention, he might not leave his seat at the FCC when Obama leaves office.

    Sure wish we had the same with our telecom system. It all needs to be under common carrier and publicly funded infrastructure. And we the voters are responsible for oversight! Don't vote for stupid shit.

      Obviously you haven't driven on the highways in California.

      There may be multiple reasons for one to wonder.
      For example: "I wonder how they can be a developed country with such crappy highways?"
