Online Gaming youth vs adult

In the online video gaming world the only effort seen to elevate adult gamers from children is equafax. With assumed identity never knowing the age of the other gamer and with the competiveness in game sometimes things or words get a bit out of hand. It seems the older gamers are in one category of bad for our youth and the youth who in most occasions say the worst are the victim. The ESRB ratings system is a great ...more »

Satellite Used and Subsidized Where Appropriate

Satellite cost/speed offerings currently available do not meet the broadband needs of rural communities. Satellite is still the most cost effective way to reach areas of extremely low population density. Identifying those for whom Satellite is the most effective means of providing broadband (with a reasonable 5m/1m speed and subsidizing it through a revamped Universal Service Fund is one solution. The subsidies would ...more »

A copy of my orginal Broadband Plan filing with the FCC

The FCC has been tasked with developing a National Broadband Plan by February 17, 2010, and has requested input. Most of the comments filed to date deal with a myriad of technology issues rather than approaching the creation of this plan based on the economic constraints that must be overcome in order to provide broadband to as much of the U.S. population as is practical. 2. The goal of providing broadband ...more »

GIS and Mobile Broadband as a means to reform education

We need to recognize that mobile computing is now a reality. Rather than allowing schools to buy cell phone jammers we should encourage them to employ smart phones for educational purposes. Imagine if students always have the opportunity to learn wherever they are. A GIS system coupled with locational-aware datasets could make this possible. When they go to the skatepark they could find out how many injuries have occurred ...more »

Powerline internet

A lot of people are poo-pooing the idea of of delivering internet over powerline because it isn't as fast as cable. Quite honestly I'm sick of hearing it--you know what is SLOW--dial-up and satellite!

While ...more »

Focus on the agenda of the FCC's Chief Diversity Officer

Everyone can offer up idea after idea on this message board, but we should all consider the agenda behind the "broadband expansion" effort. The "means" to the "ends" do matter. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who is opposed to having broadband internet available virtually anywhere in the country. However, there are two greater issues to consider. First, our national debt and the interest on the debt ...more »
