“In his first days as President Trumpâ€™s pick to lead the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai has aggressively moved to roll back consumer protection regulations created during the Obama presidency.
Mr. Pai took a first swipe at net neutrality rules designed to ensure equal access to content on the internet. He stopped nine companies from providing discounted high-speed internet service to low-income individuals. He withdrew an effort to keep prison phone rates down, and he scrapped a proposal to break open the cable box market.”
See Trumpâ€™s F.C.C. Pick Quickly Targets Net Neutrality RulesSo, at the speed of light, Trump attacks the ordinary folk trying to get on line. No breaks for poor or imprisoned. No fairness to content-providers. Expect to pay twice for Internet service, once directly to the ISP and again through the content-provider. This is good for business, unless you are a content-provider. This is not good for workers who are getting their employers jerked around by Trump or facing higher prices. It’s just good for the winners that Trump picks despite fairness in the market.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
