Net neutrality, census results and declaring war on Rupert Murdoch
Afternoon links to know:
News: net neutrality
The Federal Communications Commission approved the first net neutrality regulation calling for unimpeded access to Web content for home Internet. The agreement left the question of mobile wireless Web carriers unanswered. Wired posted a PowerPoint presentation detailing what the wireless Web carriers hope to change.
News: 2010 Census
There are 308,745,538 people in the United States. The teen birth rate has dropped to a record low (depressing "Teen Mom" repeats having an effect?). And 18 states are gaining or losing seats in the House of Representatives. Explore the winners and losers here.
News: British media scandal
The British business secretary Vince Cable is out of a job after tapes leaked of him telling undercover reporters he had "declared war on" Rupert Murdoch. The reporters did not work for Murdoch; they worked for the Telegraph, a paper that has protested Murdoch's control of media companies in the past. The reporters did not include Cable's remarks in their story, but a "whistleblower" leaked the audio, Robert Mackey at the New York Times reports.
Just a moment of oddness:
(Thanks, the Daily What!)
