Public Knowledge

This guy is clueless about his topic, but that won’t stop him from making policy decisions that affect the rest of us. The question is, if he has not even a basic understanding of the way the internet works and, as a result, no concept of the effects of the proposed regulation, what is he basing his vote on? Anyone want to take a guess?

Excerpt of the speech by Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska):

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.

It’s a series of tubes.
