Sen. Ted Stevens, net know-nothing
Ted Stevens, (R-Alaska), in addition to being a sputtering loon most of the time and the king of pork spending, is the guy who has enormous power over the future of the internet and whether service providers (the corporations such as AT&T and Verizon who own the on-ramps to the information superhighway) are allowed to charge us to view popular sites which utilize a lot of bandwidth. (The "net neutrality" issue).
If you've always thought the internet was a big truck (and who didn't?), you're wrong.
Turns out it's a series of tangled up tubes.
Listen, learn, and be inspired by Stevesn's firm grasp of internet technology. (and bust a move if ya want.)
