Houston Hall In The West Village

Houston Hall in the West Village on 222 Houston (take the 1 train to Houston and it is steps away) is an awesome place. I like the bigness of it. And there is an authentic ambience. Two big screens of sports help too. Friday and Saturday evenings here are epic, if you like large crowds.

Net Neutrality In Danger?

Tim Wu: Goodbye, Net Neutrality; Hello, Net Discrimination
The broadband carriers want to make more money for doing what they already do. Never mind that American carriers already charge some of the world’s highest prices, around sixty dollars or more per month for broadband, a service that costs less than five dollars to provide.
It is a matter of disbelief to me that net neutrality should be in jeopardy. That is quite a statement on the political system. This impacts quite literally everybody. And yet the vested interests are ploughing along. What should instead happen is deregulation that brings the price down on broadband services.

So long, net neutrality? FCC to propose new pay-for-preferential treatment rules
