Commenting on old slashdot article....

My new for 2010 mantra - if I can't read the book on a modern eBook reader (kindle/nook/etc) or their pc/ipod/iphone/blackberry software equivalent, then I'm not buying... It's time the publishers and authors worked all that out and moved on to the 21st century...

Facebook Masks Worse Privacy With New Interface

The DMCA applies only to copyrighted works, not registered trademarks - note the "Copyright" in the acronym....

This can be taken in several ways - one that the DMCA can't be used to force a provider to remove their clients content or be subject to being participative in the act, but then again the protections for the providers are not there if their customer infringe a trademark either...

Behind the Cogent-Sprint Depeering

dwayrynen Re:Not so fast. (325 comments)

In the end, no company can force another company to spend money to support their customers.

Imagine if you and I were neighbors. I have 10 kids and you have 1.

When you send your kid over to play with ours we end up feeding your kid and helping care for him/her while they are here. It's spendy, but NOTHING like when my 10 kids come over to your house and eat your food/popcorn/use your toilet paper, etc.

At some point, the costs of my kids outweigh the benefit that your kids have from playing with mine.

Peering is much the same....
