FCC adopts net neutrality (lite)

After years of debating, infighting, wrangling in court, and mostly just waiting, the Federal Communications Commission has approved an Order that will adopt “basic rules of the road to preserve the open Internet as a platform for innovation, investment, competition, and free expression.” Net neutrality has finally arrived—but it’s not what backers of the idea thought they’d be getting.

“Today for the first time the FCC is adopting rules to preserve basic Internet values,” declared FCC Chair Julius Genachowski, who called the Order “a strong sensible non-ideological framework that protects Internet freedom.”

And what if I don’t WANT TO MAKE THE GOD DAMN LOGO BIGGER? Oh… I have to do it anyway. Why? Because they said so? Fine.

Fonts In Use is a brand new website from Nick Sherman, Stephen Coles and Sam Berlow, with Indra Kupferschmid and Marc Oxborrow contributing. It profiles typefaces used all across the graphic design world, and goes into depth on how well the typefaces were used, where you could find the typefaces if you wanted to use them yourself, and, if the typefaces were badly chosen, where you could find suitable alternates. Think of it as a long-form Type Tide (which Stephen also maintains, though I expect to be replaced with this new website). Overall, this is a website you definitely want to keep after!

I’m geeking out about this website!

Me: “We will set you up with Google Analytics.”

Client: “No way. I don’t want that.”

Me: “Why not? its great!”

Client: “My wife has it on her website and she only gets 50 hits a month. No thanks. Get me something else.”

This is a great single serving site. I love it. Check it out yourself here.

The End of the Internet as We Know It?:

Tomorrow morning, the country’s five federal communications commissioners will be casting votes that could dramatically alter the Internet.

The commissioners are voting on a troubling Net Neutrality proposal released earlier this month by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. While Genachowski’s proposal has yet to be made public, it reportedly would not offer the same protections to wireless Internet users as it would to those using wired connections. And it would open the door to “paid prioritization,” which could allow phone and cable companies to create toll roads favoring the traffic of a select few companies that can pay by slowing down everyone else. (This has been widely reported and confirmed by FCC sources.)

Sam: “That would be my lunch… Thank you, Bridget.”
