Don't Root for Aereo, the World's Most Ridiculous Start-up http://j.mp/PV1yru (Pando Daily) "But as a standalone service, Aereo makes no sense. Indeed, anyone who truly wishes for more common sense in the media business should root for Aereo's failure, not its victory. Let's never forget that this is a firm that will charge people a sky-high price for shows that we can all get for free. By perpetuating the idea that free television should be a service that we pay for-that merely rebroadcasting free television should incur some kind of convenience fee for customers-Aereo is cementing an indefensible policy. Free TV should be free, wherever you get it. By suggesting otherwise, Aereo isn't merely profoundly stupid; it's dangerous, too." - - - The "tiny antenna" argument has struck me as technically extremely dubious all along -- all else aside. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
