Tech at Night: Insurance companies may attack innovation. A group even more absurd than Bitcoin zealots.
Remember during the height of the Edward Snowden media frenzy, how his defenders would dutifully parrot every word RT said about him? Here’s your great Snowden defender now. RT and Snowden are the enemies of liberty, peace, and the United States of America.
Bitcoin is the fantasy tool of ideologues, the 21st century version of Goldbuggery, but there turns out to be a group even more ridiculous than the Bitcoin zealots: TSA agents.

Tech at Night: We need a pro-innovation FCC. We need fewer pro-regulation Republican Senators, too.
Sorry for missing Tech at Night on Friday. After that near-miss with a cold, I decided to start the weekend a little early that night. But we’re back. So with five days of news to catch up on, let’s see what we have here.
Here’s a reminder of why Net Neutrality was a terrible idea. Making people pay for what they use creates opportunities for innovation. If ESPN wants to negotiate bulk rates for wireless data, let them!

Barack Obama on ESPN – McCain staff, return those calls
ESPN’s sitdown with Barack Obama is outlined in full by Awful Announcing, hands down the best sports TV blog there is. It seems awfully brief and fluff-filled, as if the Worldwide Leader was very uncomfortable with asking any tough questions. C’mon, folks – Al Gore and Jack Kemp had to answer questions about Roberto Alomar spitting in an umpire’s face in a Vice Presidential debate! | Read More »
Regarding Bret Favre
Ok I really have to get this off my chest about the whole Brett Favre situation. I am really tired of the Green Bay Packers being made out to be the villains here. I cannot count the number times I have heard ESPN commentators or radio hosts say “Why wouldn’t they want him back? He will make the team better.” You would think they, of | Read More »
