  • EU Parliament encourages open wireless and unlicensed white spaces: http://bit.ly/jNNgRE. Will the US be leapfrogged again? #
  • @linkhoe We leapfrogged back. #
  • Quick, what company could do $4 billon revenue and $2 billion profits from social games this year? Hint: not Zynga. http://tcrn.ch/jzLkfL #
  • Reading about the Protect IP Act. Worried the biggest threats to Net freedom will come from democracies. http://bit.ly/jtCGkX #
  • Galleon head (and Wharton alum) Rajaratnam convicted of insider trading. Word to my MBAs: don't do it! http://nyti.ms/mDGw1K #
  • @sivavaid Thanks again for coming to Penn yesterday. Here's the Google Suggest infoviz I mentioned: http://hint.fm/projects/seer/ #
  • @GlennF Will send you a name of a lawyer who should be able to talk to you about Twitpic. #
  • Interesting on several levels. RT @haroldfeld: WSJ reports #FCC Commissioner Baker to go to Comcast. http://on.wsj.com/iZcn0Z #
  • FCC Commissioner Baker would join Kyle McSlarrow and Rachelle Chong as recent high-profile Comcast policy hires. #
  • I always thought it would take several people to replace Comcast's estimable Joe Waz, who is retiring. #
  • Reminds me of justifying a 30" monitor b/c I taught e-commerce. RT @iamkristy: Boss: "You need all this to make the best educational games." #
  • The core argument for vouchers is they force public schools to improve. Is there any data on that? http://huff.to/miJOMh #
  • @scrawford I'm trying to think of another FCC Commissioner going directly to a regulated company. Can think of one in last 15 years. #
  • @nbramble An agency commissioner would be expected to recuse themselves from relevant matters if negotiating a job with a regulated company. #
  • @nbramble No idea of the timing in Baker's case, but she has never been known for ethical lapses. I assume she checked with OGC. #
  • If we lose academic freedom, what's left as independent? RT @lessig: buying the right to hire professors at #fsu http://bit.ly/jvhMh7 #
  • I do think it's incumbent on FCC Commissioner Baker to explain how her move to Comcast doesn't violate any legal or ethical standards. #
  • Another democracy threatening #netfreedom RT @rmack: Google Issues Statement on New Indian Web Rules http://ow.ly/4SuDr #
  • To avoid liability, India says to use "the best practices followed internationally by well-known mega corporations." http://bit.ly/iHFWqk #
  • @BillSeitz Right, so is there any data (1) that the failing schools close (with vouchers), and (2) what happens to kids whose schools close? #
  • Heading to PPL Park to watch the Philadelphia Union dominate the LA Galaxy. (That's pro soccer for all you clueless Americans.) #
