  1. Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel’s 1994 Internet Knowledge Is Hilarious in Perfect Electric Car Ad

    "What is Internet?" That surprising grasp of Internet dialect tho.

    In 1994, we lived in a world where no one understood the Internet. Today, we live in a world where I can't get people to understand that my hybrid car has exactly 0 miles of electric-only range and doesn't plug into the wall. Hopefully, we will someday get to live in one where people understand new types of cars as well as they currently understand the Internet: at the minimum acceptable level to function in society.

  2. Elon Musk Wants to Bring Affordable Space Internet to Everyone—Even Martians

    Is this why he's so worried about Skynet lately?

    SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk has a lot going on lately between trying to get a rocket to land safely on Earth from space and making sure artificial intelligence doesn't enslave/destroy us all, but he hasn't forgotten about us, Internet. His next plan is a global satellite network to make sure everyone can watch cat videos, get yelled at by faceless monsters, and communicate by reaction GIF.

  3. Here’s Congress’s Net Neutrality Bill That Would Render the FCC Helpless

    For now, it's just a bill sitting there on Capitol Hill.

    Congress has produced a bill that, if enacted, would take away the FCC's authority to reclassify broadband Internet as a utility in the interest of net neutrality. However, the bill itself includes protections for net neutrality with specific language that would ban the paid "Internet fast lanes" currently at the center of the debate.

    What does Snopes have to say about this?

    A new study shows that Americans think they're better informed because of the Internet. Meanwhile, being on the Internet every day shows that Americans aren't very well informed.

  5. Only 3 out of 5 Internet Users Know What Net Neutrality Is—Do You?

    Sigh.

    The Pew Internet Research Project has a nifty test for you to take to see how well you know the history and lingo of the Internet. But don't worry if you do badly, friends—you can't do a worse job than the 61% of people polled who could not accurately identify the correct definition of net neutrality. That's a depressing statistic if I ever heard one.

  6. President Obama Just Advocated the Best Net Neutrality Solution, So Get on It, FCC

    Or: How the President Saved Christmas the Internet.

    As President Obama has pointed out, this one is entirely on your shoulders, FCC. We don't want another set of half-assed rules that can just get struck down in court. We want you to go back to the plan that would actually work to keep the Internet free and open, and that plan is reclassifying Internet service as a utility.

  9. Sexist Ad on Polygon Causes Uproar—But Is It For The Right Reasons?

    I saw this tweet earlier this morning. Whether or not it is legitimate, I do not know (which is all kinds of depressing unto itself), but what really bothered me were the responses.
