Our theme for today's show? Somebody's watching you, and it ain't just the Police. It's also Facebook and Google, and apparently some people think Net neutrality means the government will be watching you, too. Watch for the Net neutrality 101 rant at the end of the show plus a lot of singing of the "I'll be watching you" song. Because Brian Tong is on. We just hope Sting doesn't sue.

Kyle: wait, is this how this Facebook stuff is supposed to work?
I took your advice from several days ago and started deleting my profile data to make my facebook profile as bare bones as possible. That way when they do finally just opt me into publicly sharing everything there is nothing left to share. I logged in yesterday to have a popup from facebook ask me to verify some of their new settings and guess what? ALL of the items I had deleted were there and I had to uncheck every field as to not share them. If it’s my data and I have deleted it, then why isn’t it gone? :’(

Better not wish for net neutrality with too much vigor. As I understand
it, they would stop things like podcasts with what they consider not of
any worth (like conservative blogs, podcasts, and the like). The problem
with that scenario is that the next administration might consider other
things (like Buzz Out Load) to be of no worth. We don’t need government
stomping on free speech, do we?
Love the show,
I can’t believe no one said this yet:
Miss a turn?
