Episode 90: FCC Wireless Lockdown!?


Update: Thomas got the month wrong in this episode.  There are only eight days left as of this writing to comment. According to LibrePlanet, the deadline has been extended to October, but the Federal Register says otherwise.  To be on the safe side, please leave a comment on the FCC's proposed rules!  Just click the green "Submit a Formal Comment" and follow LibrePlanet's guidelines for commenting!

LibrePlanet has a good explaination of the issue at hand. Those wanting to make a comment can do so through the Federal Register's page. The link for leaving a comment is at the top and you have until September 9th. This issue is a reminder of the debate on the war against general computing. One piece arguing that it is happening can be read here and a skeptical response can be viewed here. Thomas concludes the show with WWE Immortals, a game he ia getting addicted to.
