ok. apprently i’m behind the times. apparently, it’s already old news that the internet is a series of tubes. my lack of knowledge of the series of tubes phenomenon can only be explained by positing that those tubes got clogged and my personal internet did not arrive until this morning.
that’s right ladies and gentlemen, i am joining the blogging REVOLUTION and writing YET ANOTHER blog post on this SERIES OF TUBES we call the internet about the internet being a series of tubes. if your personal internet has been clogged as well, and you are not familiar with the “series of tubes” phenomenon, i will explain. there’s the net neutrality amendment, which has been debated for a while. it failed at a dead heat, neither side got a majority vote. preceeding this, alaskan senator ted stevens explained the internet so a layman could understand:
But this service isnt going to go through the internet and what you do is you just go to a place on the internet and you order your movie and guess what you can order ten of them delivered to you and the delivery charge is free.
Ten of them streaming across that internet and what happens to your own personal internet?
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 oclock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially…
Youre asking now that to tell people who do have these systems that they can not ask that someone pay for the increased capability provided for what for business. I dont have to have that kind of speed theyre talking about, in terms of speeds that theyre going to put in the internet. But people who are streaming through 10, 12 movies at a time or a whole book at a time for consumers those are not you and me, those are not consumers, theyre the providers. And those people who provide these things and use the internet for a delivery service, rather than for a concept of communication, thats the difference…
Here we have a situation where enormous entities want to use the Internet for their purposes to save money for doing what theyre doing now. They use FedEx, they use the delivery services, they use the mail. They deliver it in other ways and they want to deliver it vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. Its not a truck.
Its a series of tubes.
And if you dont understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
omg! the INTERNET HIS STAFF SENT HIM WAS DELAYED!!!!!
……..this is yet another example of the people who legislate these things have NO F—ING CLUE WHAT THE F— THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT!!!
I will close with a few helpful and related links. Let’s hope your internet does not get clogged.
