So Paul Ryan’s online Q&A today, which has now concluded, got more attention from the general public than this shitty Tumblr blog does, but not by much. Mashable: “A source close to the Romney-Ryan campaign told Mashable that it was ‘unclear’ if Ryan would be responding to comments left on his Quora thread, but the source added that the campaign is hoping to continue to expand their usage of Quora over time.”
“A small battalion of noted broadband engineers, developers, and academics have sent the Federal Communications Commission a thank you letter (.pdf) for simply noticing this dichotomy—an “open” version of cyberspace that treats all packets equally, versus an emergent space where ISPs will spawn a range of priority accessed products that the agency calls ‘specialized services.’”
I don’t understand you but you sound important!
[A] lot of authors think of “readers” the way we think of any intangible but demonstrably present phenomenon, like bacteria. We can’t see them, so we don’t think about them much. We like them in theory when they’re helping us, digesting our food et cetera — in fact, we take it for granted that they will do so – but mostly we only notice them when they’re making us sick.
