Tech at Night: Internet Sales Taxes are coming, Stuxnet justifies government action?, Spectrum crunch [HTML Fixed]

Tech at Night

Why the Marketplace Fairness Act is looking inevitable: We’re up to about a third of all GOP governors backing it, and there’s a reasonable probability of a former GOP governor becoming President with an all Republican Congress.

Broadening the tax base without actually raising taxes. It’s the Holy Grail for a conservative governor. I expect it’ll get done in 2013.

Riddle me this: If the US government perpetrated Stuxnet and its successor, why do the attacks justify US government action domestically?

If we don’t fix the spectrum crunch, we won’t like the consequences. And that’s why we need government out of the way of the secondary spectrum market, starting with Verizon/Comcast.

Guess what: Interoperability can have tradeoffs, meaning foolish government attempts to mandate it… can have bad consequences.

I’m fine with an Internet bill of rights only if it’s like the original and is only a list of restrictions on the Congress.
