What is online service provider?

"Ages ago Chris and I did an episode about online service providers. But this time we want to specifically look at prodigy partly because it was one of the earliest in fact, depending upon whom you ask the earliest online service provider. Now, online service providers are different from Internet service providers, right? So I'M GONNA. Blow your minds out their kids. So you youngins out there there was a time when we did not all have access to the Internet. It was a terrifying time dinosaurs roamed the earth. Occasionally, you would go camping and an enormous guy in a hockey mask would chase you around the eighties tough y'all I actually do remember that time dimly I mean I I was you know not necessarily eating all food yet and I could barely read but I do in fact, recall a time before the Internet I grew up in that time and I bear the scars to this day. Also I don't read that much currently. But at any rate nowhere, we're talking about a time where. The computer revolution had really taken hold of personal computers had already become a a rising trend it still was. Kind of a rarity to find someone who owned a personal computer it wasn't like Pc's everywhere certainly not now but they were certainly getting very popular in the mid eighty s and more and more people were adopting them as the price was becoming more affordable for the average household rather than for hobbyists only right. Right. So those those bleeding edge technology adopters who somehow have the jobs that allow them to to adult their obsession with technology they had already gone through the first wave, and now it was trickling down to everybody else arrayed. We're we're talking about the kind of the two eighty, six sort of days prodigy started. Up So. During those times your computers. Early computers were really especially for personal computers were just self contained devices right? It was whatever you software you had to run on that machine and that was pretty much it. which would put on the machine with fancy fancy, a five and a quarter inch floppy desk. Wouldn't necessarily even have a hard drive you might just run it directly from the disks. So in other words, disc was popped out that was it. You didn't have an program anymore Yay. Operating system although you might not even call it that anyway. Eventually. you start seeing things like modems where you can do things like connect to a local bulletin board system or B s this was usually something that was hyper local as something that would be running the same city that you live in because in order to connect to most BBS, as you had to dial a specific number and usually it was a, it was a local number, a local number you could dial into a bbs that's run in a state. You know twenty states away long distance charges at the time were also such that that that it would have been incredibly cost prohibitive. Yeah. Anyone any kid. Who experimented with connected to BBS is might find out rapidly from his parents or her parents that. It was not the best idea to do that without parental. Agreement beforehand because you can rack up huge bills I, mean this is the era where long distance charges were a real thing I know that a lot of people today aren't even they don't. That's not something they even think about because. In most cases, you don't have a long distance charge anymore about once a month I marvel at the incredible present, and the fact that I can call people all over the country without having any without worrying about Oh. We talked for five minutes. This is going to cost me twenty bucks or whatever and they have not said anything value. So so at any rate at this time, that was pretty much it, and then there became this idea of the online service provider away for companies to create services that would open up brand new opportunities for consumers, and it was before the Internet had rolled out to being something that the general public could access. So be sure but people were looking for a way to provide service to to consumers who wanted to communicate and be to companies who wanted to sell more stuff give give companies an outlet to sell more stuff. Right. So this was a this was. The idea like instead of instead of the Internet the Internet, it's the network of networks right? It's all these different computers that are connected together and lots of different types of communication goes across the Internet from email to file transfers to web traffic. All of that stuff is going on across the Internet an online service provider is more like a very small network. It's not a network of networks is a network in which you use your computer to dial into a host computer and the host computer serves up all the information on it that it has. So in other words, instead of having access to everything in the world, you just have access to whatever the host computer has on it. And online service providers did this in different ways.

The coronavirus outbreak is causing a spike in gaming usage

"And I can safely say that as I look out my back window across my little suburb of New York City here there is some kids playing video games I just know that it's true maybe they should be on the zoom in a class maybe they should be doing some class work but they're playing video games it's just a fact Michael actor is video game technology analyst for Wedbush securities he joins on the phone from Long Beach California I'm right Michael right I mean a lot of kids are playing videos out of adults are playing video games right now yeah I just took a break for playing video games this call so yes everybody's going to call that research don't you yeah exactly it is absolutely so what do we know about the the backdrop here I mean there is anecdotal evidence but I mean you've got your hands on real data here right yeah I I do but you know realistically there's two things we're gonna do whether we're indoors or outdoors we're gonna eat and we're going to entertain ourselves and you know it's it's intuitively obvious if we can't go to restaurants will eat at home if we can't go out to movie theaters and sporting events or even engage in physical activity we're going to do that at home and so you know clearly we're seeing from internet service providers that it internet usage is up a Verizon set up seventy five percent we got something yesterday from Comcast talking about wifi access and so the question is just what are people doing with the internet and then the answer is obviously they're watching a lot of video and applying a lot of games from the Spotify just said their usage is up people are just entertaining themselves in place games are the the most likely you know beneficiary of this you can do it on mobile you can do it on tablets you can do on the TV and people are doing that so are the supplies there to meet the demand of the telegraph had a report that whether to you Kerry the US there's definitely you know people are out there doing you know I'm playing video games it's a great escape right now especially those you know this feeling isolated from the rest of the world or from others and and the thing is the demands of the consoles are completely sold out so I'm just curious about supply yeah Nintendo switch is the one that it's impossible to get and you know obviously they didn't plan for a pandemic but they once again called animal crossing which is actually pretty much a single player game really fun though it's like a a life simulation you farming you trade in it's a it's a really really fun game so that the sales of acting were off the charts and people trying to get their hands on switches and I frankly think that's because there's a big demand for kids it you know adults probably can can play on PC or phone or they have consuls I'm you're not seeing ex boxes and PlayStations sold out the service which is really benefiting just because it's you know the hot item right now and they have the high came well it's also interesting you know you mentioned PC's because a lot of people and I think Carol and I are both in this category not the gamer category but more the a lot of folks are sort of amping up their work from home so they set up to me and I know we boosted our internet speed just to deal not only with my needs broadcasting the show but also in anticipation more streaming and other things that the the kids are doing with their school work and and things like that so I do wonder how that plays through especially that PC gaming part of the equation PC gamers it total about four hundred million people total and that's a lot of console gamers more like two fifty million interesting mobile mobile gamers one point five billion so you know the the the most frequently used devices are mobile phones and you can play games like candy crush on your tablet as well our PC you know the the dominate games are games like Fortnite league of legends you know so those are those are games people play all the time console tends to be things like Madden and FIFA and call of duty so the different types of experiences I think the the right analogy is like going to a movie theater to see a feature length film you know that that's what a console game is and watching YouTube videos with a mobile game is like so you know there are different types of activity for different types of devices but all really engaging and you know people play them all day long is it too early though to to make some investment calls based on what's happening now does that make any sense to even think about that at this point Michael I it's I mean beyond the pandemic I mean the pandemic is clearly going to drive up the use case for in the month of March and probably for the entire June quarter of you'll probably see some people one over permanently so you're gonna get some people who weren't really gamers before who find it you know this activities really enjoyable I actually think that we're on the verge of expanding the market just remarkably by streaming games and and that's you know Google's offering something called stadia I think Amazon's gain at going to enter the fray Microsoft and Sony each have products that allow you to play games on any device without a console or PC when that happens and I think that starts this fall and I think it grows over the next five to seven years it should double or triple demand for the content so anybody's got content is a beneficiary anybody who makes peripheral seal controllers are keyboards is a beneficiary and you know we're we're working with an ETF called gamers GMR that's ninety some odd stocks in the video game video game technology sector that's the pure play that's the easiest way to play it you're going to get exposure across border across industries to add a democratic system expand all walked right embraces you've got single you've got glue mobile you've got all the names in there well because they're also everybody other other than you know big big big companies like Google where gaming is not a big piece of their business but will be Sunday Amazon same thing but short of that yes he got all the publishers all the device makers hole the mole pure play mobile guys well and even I believe in keep me honest here Michael some of the semiconductor company's too and we talk about that with our inside our internal research analysts all the time about how when you look at the nvidia is another is of the world so much demand it seems these days I guess this was both on the PC and the and the console side is especially you know there's some there's some semiconductor demand that is driven by gaming right absolutely and you know nvidia in particular they make the high end graphics cards so you know that four hundred million PC gamers they they need a video card for two hundred fifty million console players the media video

Getting internet access to everyone during a pandemic is not an easy job

Getting internet access to everyone during a pandemic is not an easy job

"As more cities and states asked people to stay at home. We're all relying on our Internet access. Which means the digital divide is more obvious than ever and tens of millions of Americans still don't have access to reliable high speed Internet. Telecom companies and Internet service providers are extending service and offering free sign ups but there are still barriers not least of which are regulations and rules against local Internet networks. Christopher Missiles Director of the Institute for Local self-reliances Community Broadband Networks Initiative. I asked him what we're seeing in the short term. Now there's a lot of people who are signing up for service who didn't have it before or maybe they're going to a better provider but we're seeing in areas that have one or more cases of the virus that some of the ISP's are seeing record sign ups in some cases twice the previous record of daily number of new customers that unfortunately means that we need is peace to have protocols for connecting people because the number of service providers have actually stopped going into people's homes and doing new connections while they figure out how to handle this and so we will need to find a way in which we can do new connections. Because I think that this connectivity is just going to become more and more important allow so you're saying it is literally spurring people who had not had broadband access before to sign up? But they might still be waiting until this is over whenever that is for to be installed. Yes that appears to be the case and I think this is even more important because many. Isp's from the biggest companies to small local companies. A lot of them are finding ways of doing sixty day or ninety day free periods for low income families to get signed up. And I think that's really important for families that right now might be having to leave their home in order to go to a community WIFI spot. You know. We don't want people to leave the home unless it's essential and so if we can get people connected in the home that would be the ideal situation sort of in the medium term. The trump administration is pushing for a giant stimulus package. Do you think that we'll see some of that? Go towards helping people get online. I think we're seeing a lot of interest in that. I just don't know exactly what we can do in the medium-term to get those connections going. I would think one of the things is to definitely support the Internet service companies that are extending their networks and maybe giving them some relief but one of the things definitely need to do is to let communities deal with this in in their own ways. There are many states that currently limit the ability of local governments to build their own networks. And we really need to see those limits go away so that communities are free to expand Internet access as rapidly as I can. Yeah I wanted to talk about that. Specifically we've seen states cities big. Isp's be really resistant to the idea of community broadband municipal broadband. What might happen there. How can policy help restart some of those projects? Well the first is that the states themselves could change the laws. There is no one thousand nine states that limit local authority to build networks partner with local companies and they could decide tomorrow to get rid of those limitations and then the other option would be for the federal government to strike them down in some manner and Congress could do that directly or it could condition aid of certain kinds to those states to say. Hey if you're gonNA limit broadband investment in your state. Then we're not going to give you a federal dollars to expand the networks and this is this something that really gets to me because we've spent billions of dollars on network cetera obsolete and in fact we still are through the remainder of two thousand twenty writing checks to big companies that are delivering very slow. Dsl That does not qualify broadband in so those big companies have all had their shot. And it's time to have a all hands on deck approach to expanding Internet access. Internet infrastructure is no joke in terms of establishing but is this a moment for startups. At all this is going to be a real test for the wireless. Isp's some of whom are coming through and their networks are doing fine others are not as good technologically and I'm afraid their networks will not work and this is more common in rural areas. And so I do think we will get a winnowing of the kinds of networks. That will succeed when we have a sudden shift in demand as we are currently experiencing and those that that don't make it. I don't know if anyone seen it. But those organization called the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. They have a page that is collecting all of the different offers for low income families. I think about ten percent of kids in school do not have broadband at home Their website is digital inclusion dot. Org they're a great group. That's really trying to get information out about where families can go to get access if they do not have it at home. Christopher Mitchell is with the institute for Local Self Reliance he told me nineteen states have passed laws that specifically limit the authority of local governments to partner with local companies to build broadband

Q&A | Your Questions Answered.

"Hello Hi and a particularly warm welcome to the Emma Gun show. I'm your host Emma and we're GONNA wardner and it's time for an ask me anything the Osmania that I asked for questions back in November and December. Just a couple of times. Because I thought it'd be nice to have a conversation with you and also I am publishing this in the middle of the corona virus crisis and a lot of my sheduled poku awes- have been postponed. Don't worry normal service will resume soon but as I put this off because I'd had so many guests recently. I thought actually this is the perfect time August. I'll chat to answer your questions. How lovely how brilliant my most ex. Mrs? I can have a chat on this particular episode. These questions have all come from the facebook. Group linked to join is in the show notes. And I will just say this. I do get asked quite a lot on social media or on email. Where do I find the show notes if you are listening to this episode you all already within the platform the service the provider the website that has the show notes in is just a case of if you're in a particular Internet Internet service provider. Po. 'cause platform you have to click three dots or go to more INFO or swipe the screen or whatever. But you already there. That's why you can find the hyper links with anything mentioned so just a side note. I do hope you're keeping well. I have done a sense check in the facebook group and I said let you still want me to keep creating content. Does it matter if it's not super serious and the overwhelming response has been. Please keep doing it. Please keep doing what you do. We appreciate the destruction. So that's my green light and that's what I'm GonNa keep during the pleased. I think being insensitive and I understand how freaking serious the situation we are in is but shall we go straight. That was taken fingers. Shall we go straight in and this one actually from Nora is quote quite timing? I think she posted a couple of months ago. But the question is hi Emma. My question is about day-to-day Sanity. I guess I don't care much about products and stuff but I'd love to know what you do for clearing head each day and getting rid of or ignoring the build up we get from social media and everyday life. I just learned this week. That climate anxiety is a thing which I now obviously have. What do you tell yourself every day to stay in a positive mood overall? Sorry if this is too vague or something I own only I have. I will admit I'm a bit tipsy nor you in a safe place. Welcome to the group. Welcome to the family. You are definitely Amos decks listener. It's such a good question. I guess we'll say really timely how to not get bogged down mentally how to not think that things how to not get bogged down with negativity how to keep a positive outlook and mindset. When maybe you're dealing with things whatever they might be work life relationships friendships. Whoever whatever I can definitely and I think that's one of the things I talk to. All of my friends had periods of depression or anxiety. All of us who have worked hard and feel like we are able to manage it now will say that it feels like actually having something of a superpower because you can see it coming a mile off which means that you can deploy all relevant tactics to make sure that it stays a good distance and doesn't doesn't want you to put it mildly and actually. I was listening to a podcast with Dr Doctrine. Judge Dee he obviously has been on the show. He had rich role. He was a mega mega focused in the states on his podcast and he was talking about how he was in alcohol recovery and he had a lot and he had a relapse for a few hours but it was quite a significant lab so we had to literally dial back. After thirteen years he had to dial back to zero. His sobriety installed start again and he used the expression which I've since land is is quite common in the fellowship in twelve step programs but he used the expression of. I thought that in recovery I was getting further and further away from my addiction. But what I didn't realize is that my addiction was just doing press ups in the dark waiting for that moment to pounds which I thought was I found quite meeting. I was driving when I was listening to that and I found it quite arresting. It sort of made me go. Wow Gosh and I think that's the same about positive and negative mindsets if you've been through a low period if you've been depressed if you've struggled with your mental health and you feel as though you're through it you sometime you sometimes worry that is it is going to come back quick and fast. Which is why I think you sort of. Almost you have the superpower and you on high alert to see it coming in the distance and as I say deploy all relevant tactics. I know I went up one of ramble. That but what I mean is. I think whether you've had mental health issues on not whether you suffer with depression not with your pessimist or not. I think it's good to check in with yourself just every morning and to say how am I feeling today truth be told I am on day? Eight of south isolating to protect others may not symptomatic. And it's getting to me. Yesterday evening I go to Migraine. My jaw is incredibly tight. I woke up this morning. I was weeping. I really want to count this morning and I felt am. I could feel right. Day has the potential to be one of those days. I could let drive me Rothman. I-drive it so I wrote my Yoga Mat. I did a latest stretching. I stretch my neck out. I did look deep breathing. I spend a Lotta time in childs pose and I was able to actually lessen the how the feeling of the Migraine and then just get going but it was because when I served it systems check when I woke up with all yeah. Something's definitely wrong. You know that chipper today so I did what I thought would be the right thing. I didn't work out sometimes working out the answer. Sometimes it's not intuitively. I felt like being really gentle with myself was the answer this morning. I have contact lenses in. I haven't put makeup on blow dry. My Hair I've done a bit of Yoga and now I'm just very gently sitting at my desk token to you. It's very very easy to consume social media. What's the news and failures are? Everything is Blake. I do feel like especially with the news. I don't often have news television on so when I think about I say don't often have it. I've never really had the news on. I'm not one of those people who engages in televise news that way. I've always really when using the newspapers bought. I remember if I think about significant events. I think about things like nine eleven or elections and that was when I would watch televised news and the screens would be breaking news. This that and the screens would be very automated. That'd be lots of Red. That be lots of you. Know the thing scrolling across screen going up in so you can't be stimulated and then on a normal news cycle. Those things wouldn't happen and recently when I've engaged in news channels not just in recent times maybe in the last couple of years or so. I've noticed that they the the way that the television screen the laid out is in a similar way to win what we used to associate with really really big news events. And it's just it's just to keep watching because let's face it TV channels businesses. And they have the things are so. I tend not to engage in those sorts of televised news channels too much because I find that breaking news thing. It takes me back to other instances other periods of history. That perhaps went so great so my advice to you is particularly around the time now. I know we're not going to talk to you much by the coin virus but my advice now is watch Your leaders daily address. We've forced onto during every day in the UK look at twitter. Don't re tweet or re grammar anything. They'll get your news from there and just look at trusted resources and I did a podcast recently on some really good sources of information on what's going on at the moment they're not sensationalized that with epidemiologist who are experts in infectious disease. So not only is it. James Elles doing brilliant content at the moment where he just keeping everybody updated by speaking to experts analyzing the data on a week by week basis. But also there's some brilliant stuff with Joe Rogan with an expert in infectious disease called Micro Asta home that really kind of explains the genesis of all of these sorts of things and one of the things he says during the pause because Jerry says he's you're making me nervous Michael and he said I'm yeah and by the end of this episode. We'll talk about how not to be nervous. So I feel like they're more helpful resources so in terms of clearing your head and ignoring the bill that we from social media and Everyday Life. I would really choose carefully. What it is that you can see what media you consume and who you listen to and who you

How do I work from home? Tips from the experienced

"Friday night. It's normally date night but not right now. Since the current virus outbreak social distancing has made dating nearly impossible keyword nearly our tech reporter. Georgia wells will join us to explain how people are using tack to try and find that special someone but first congratulations. You've made it to the end of another week of work from home to celebrate as per usual. We're inviting our senior personal tech columnist. Joanna Stern back to share another one of her work from home tech tips. Hey Joanna I'm here again. We're excited you don't ever sound excited. May I mentioned that? That's just I think that's my personality. Okay but I am genuinely deep down. I am excited to be here. Okay okay anyway. That's not the tip for the day. What is today's tip? Yeah so I saved this tip for the end of the week because it's a couple of tips in one and it requires a bit of work. But all of these tips have to do with your. I don't want to say crappy. Say a curse word but your home. Wifi INSERT ADJECTIVE THERE. About how you feel about your home. Wifi usually. It's not very good but there are some things you can do. And right now we are at a moment where our home networks have never been taxed so much and that is a lot from this streaming video and that is a lot from the video chatting but it's also all of the other activity of people in your house doing things on the network so I have a couple of tips about what you should do. The first one which is kind of a cop out. It's just don't use Wifi at all. So if you can plug in directly to your router get an Ethernet cord. Get a dangle that you can connect your laptop hard part here. Is there sold out everywhere? So best of luck to all of you. Survival of the fittest. You might have it in that box of cables that you have in your closet or in your basement or yes under your bed. Do you probably have the Ethernet Cord? Which is Great? Those have not changed in one million years. You probably don't have the dangle took it up into your laptop probably have a USB laptop. Maybe you had an older or laptop with the regular. Usb issue is that the laptops no longer have ethernet. Jacks so right. Good luck to you. I can't really help on that. But then comes the issue of most people don't want to be chained to their routers and they want to be around their house using. Wi Fi and best hip for people. And this is a good thing to do this weekend. Can you move your Wifi router to the center of the House to the area where you're using it the most for most people that's GonNa be the living room and a kitchen area? Chances are there's a reason your routers in the basement. It was installed there with a by your Internet service provider. And there's not much you can do but try this. It's always a decent solution. My biggest tip is figuring out if you need a new router and I have a couple of tips of this in my column but the biggest thing you can do is walk around your house running speed tests. Us speed test dot net. That's a website or you can download the APP and run the tests and see if there are pockets of the house where you're not getting as good signal and not not as good coverage. Chances are that is probably because your Wifi router is a little bit old and didn't have great range. I'm recommending that people if you have if you've had a Wifi router for around five years or more it's probably time for a new one. These get they. They don't get better every year but every three to five years they take some pretty big leaps and the gadgets. You have get better WIFI chips in them. And those WIFI chips need better routers to take advantage of the faster speeds all of that. You're probably wondering what route or do I recommend. I recommend the euro and you could buy the era by itself. Its Own box which is ninety nine dollars. And that's one router that you have in your house probably like the router you have right now or you can make the euro into a Mesh network system and this is something that has completely changed my life. This is one router and then you can buy these extra routers that you put around your house to create basically a blanket of Wifi for the entire house and it's pretty amazing you can get wi fi in places you thought were complete dead zones forever so yes. I'm suggesting you buy some things. But you don't have to buy them unless you follow the tips to see if you need them. Gotcha I mean and to be clear. We get zero kickbacks. We're not in any kind of business relationship with our. This is just based on your research and reporting your recommendation. Absolutely all right. That is a great tip. I know a lot of people are going to be Trying to work on their WIFI systems over the weekend. So thank you so much for that. We had also put a call out for our listeners to ask US questions or leave us their own work from home hassles challenges. What you've been listening to some of these. Tell me. Have you learned anything this week. I've learned so much this week and I want to encourage more people to call in because we are here for you. But you're kind of here for us too because they bring so much joy to us some of these comments and these these messages are not only funny. But they're insightful. So please call in. I'll give that number in a couple of seconds but I like this call. We got a lot from Jeremy. He's a student at the University of Minnesota where classes have been pushed completely online. Like everything else right now. I work from home. I have is not to do your work and your bed because you associate that place with sleeping and it makes you a lot more less productive and especially at University of Minnesota all online. It gets really difficult to God's side when it's cold and it's hard to find a space but even if it means getting your kitchen or your living room just take those online classes or do your work outside of your bedroom. That was a great tip from Jeremy. Doman are Joanna. If people want to reach out to you to share their own work from home tech tips or ask questions how should they reach out they should either email me at Joanna dot stern at wsj.com or they can leave us a message at our work from home? Tech hotline number is three one four six three five zero three eight eight excellent and we will be putting that number as we have all week in our show notes and the description. So you don't have to rewind and write it down you can just scroll into your APP and see it right there. Doing thank you so much. Have a great weekend all right after the break. Our TECH REPORTER. Georgia wells will be with us to tell us about some of the creative ways that people have used technology to keep dating in the age of social distancing. That's coming up next. We see breakthrough medicines getting to patients in record time at Emerson when issues become inspiration. Creating a better world isn't just a result. It's a responsibility. Emerson considerate solved. Sh- I've a little poem to share with you. All roses are red violets are blue. We're staying inside and social. Do that comes to you. Courtesy of our producer. Amanda llewellyn social. Distancing has changed almost every aspect of our lives these days going to the gym shopping at the grocery store and of course dating because now that those restaurants bars are closed which are the most popular date locations. People are having to find new ways to try to meet their special someone or just stay by themselves all the time. They don't WanNa do that. So they're using tack of course here to explain our tech reporter Georgia Wells. She is in San Francisco. Georgia thank you so much for joining us from very safe social distance of three thousand miles away. Thank you for having me are. A So Georgia dinner. Movie date not going to happen in the foreseeable future. What are people doing instead? Dating APP usage is through the roof. People are doing face timing. They're turning to dating APPS. The video function on dating APPs as also getting a lot of us and people are also trying to watch movies at the same time where they press play simultaneously and then do banter over text message as a way of kind of progressing their relationships while still maintaining the safe distance so I haven't been on dating APPS for awhile. Dating APPS now have video functionality. Some do and those that do are seeing a huge surge in usage prior to this pandemic the video futures weren't as popular a lot of people viewed them as almost as much work as meeting up in person and also. You didn't get to see the person but now there's this kind of obvious use case so there's an APP called say alot. They saw two hundred and fifty percent increase in video. Date sessions in the past two weeks swear they also saw spikes of usage and cities after there were corona virus local hotspots announced then the usage of the video date function would spike so people were basically canceling their real life dates. And saying okay. Let's just meet up on video. Exactly wow okay. So that's a huge jump. Are we seeing specific areas? Where this is happening more New York Montreal. Toronto Denver Los Angeles in particular. San Francisco wasn't on the list at the time. But I imagine it's probably now on the list so I can imagine that video chatting is at least better than just like texting right. At least you're seeing the person in real life or you're seeing them virtually whatever you're seeing them. What are people that you're talking to? How are they finding this? Is it harder to actually figure out if you like someone using video chat instead of meeting up? Yeah there's also a lot of etiquette associated with video chatting and so in the past people often with like give each other a heads up if they're going to video chat maybe someone would wanna put makeup or put on do their hair and put on the outfit and so chatting with the woman in San Francisco the other day. Who's this on the call with this guy who she hopes to meet up with? They couldn't meet out. They did a phone call and then out of the blue. He video chatted her and it was a really shocking moment. She said it was also maybe the new normal video chatting the also the singles. I've been chatting with say that there's a lot of pressure involved because they want to progress their relationships but they also don't want to like make expectations crazies for if they ever do get out of this shelter in state and if they ever can meet up that puts a lot of pressure on the person if they've already chatted with him for hours and hours and hours and also video chatted for hours and hours and hours and then what happens when they finally get to see each other but thanks to the pandemic all of these like norms are now at the window. People are lonely and so people wanna connect more than ever. What is this? What does that mean for the relationships? That are forming. And they're gonNA figure this out but people don't seem to have figured it out quite yet. Are you talking to anyone who is kind of making the quarantine a reason to get together? A lot of people are using it as a pickup line. I don't know if it's necessarily a reason to get together but like I've heard people saying things like didn't you know. Alcohol Kills Corona Virus. Come over to my place or you'd be worth sheltering in place together or funny lines like that. My sense is they're just using that as an excuse. There've been jokes like are they going to be quarantine babies and nine months i. Maybe I don't know but also people are looking for direction on this and it's hard so the dating apps have put up these kind of pop up. Psa's if you will but say like wash your hands off and maintain social distance but for people who aren't already in shelter in place it can be hard to know like what does that actually mean and so New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio last week with telling people if you are feeling sick. Don't go on a date or if your data's feelings don't go on a date but now that a lot of places are in shelter in place that probably that advice is probably mood because people probably can't meet up at all aright tech reporter Georgia wells stay safe sheltering in place. Thank you you too. And that was your tech news briefing.

"We're GONNA talk about edge computing today and particularly red hat's strategy strategy around that. Give me two recent applications that you have seen of edge computing so to very often reasons. Why the applications WANNA run the etch is latency which means you want to have very fast request response and the second one is reducing bandwidth over the network and those are very to have very often mentioned once? They're way too many other reasons why to do that. And for me. These two reasons are mainly the consequences of what I want to achieve and if I want to improve user experience does are probably the two The latency is probably the first one if I want to reduce the cost probably reducing. The with is another one but then there are other reasons for example risk factors. I want to improve resilient therefore I want to run my applications nations at the edge and have them running in very completely isolated environment so there are really many reasons by the two. Most mentioned wants is definitely latency latency and bandwidth so the type of edge competing. We've had for a pretty long. Time is CDN infrastructure CDN infrastructure is fairly basic. It's if I make a request for an image for example apple that image is GonNa get cashed at the edge and then subsequent requests to that resource will be sent to the edge because the edge can be closer to the user and the edge. Might it'd be a content delivery network. That is pushing out that content to a lot of different locations so that a user news Becca Stan has rapid access. A user in Texas Texas has rapid access the kinds of edge computing. That we WANNA do. Today is very different than that type of simple request response for an image for example. What kinds of computation do we want to do at the edge today? I don't want to repeat myself but it's always it depends ends on the use case and there are many industries which are doing competing for different reasons. All let's take for example Industrial Iot in the production. Shen lines where they are running. They are having multiple sensors in their production lines to control quality production for example of the product the sensors are generating a lot of data data and this data is being analyzed and is being responded is the product quality. Okay can I continue in the direction or do I need to interrupt and just a process. This is kind of application which needs very fast rapid response you cannot really rely on sending that over the network to centralized location do the processing there and then and get the response back so this is very often reason why you want to push the edge computing to location of the IOT industrial but there are also reasons. Why want to centralize? You don't want to do everything only at the edge. There are reasons why you want to do centralization so imagine I have the industrial plans and I have them all over the country but I need to train my machine learning models from different examples and I want to gather those examples from different locations therefore I need to centralize them somewhere then do training model. They're likely in the centralized location and then push out only the train models to do the fast decision making at the edge so this is one of the examples right and that architecture makes a Lotta sense because in order to train the machine learning models you need all the data centralized in a particular place or you need some large subset of the data or you need the new training examples. Whatever the data to train the models takes a lot less space than the actual models that can make a decision that can improve application infrastructure? So we need to start deploying thing these models to the edge now if we talk about the types of CDN infrastructure that has been there for a long time where you're caching an an image and then you can request the image at the CDN layer if we're talking about hosting machine learning models versus hosting basic images. Do we need different different infrastructure to run those machine learning models instead of simple. CDN Type of infrastructure. Absolutely we do and it depends on the context. What kind of application I WANNA run? Therefore the machine learning very often or for example video processing or similar requests we we might need data processing. We need real time kernels we need. GP use use very often to speed up. The processing can reduce the cost of the processing power so the type of the hardware which is enabling the the use cases is specific for the application which needs to run on top of that the CDN is very simple. Use Case as you mentioned you don't really need much of the processing Specific processing processing. But if you need to run for example containerize network function. It has very high requirements on the fast data path and networking or it needs to access the real time kernel which difficult CDN networks don't need Ari talking about machine learning stuff. I've also heard of widespread bread edge competing use cases in the telecom industry. Can you tell me about those applications. So S Forty Telco Day one to do editing edge competing for multiple reasons. I would separate it into two categories first. One is to run their own brighter X.. Networks and for that that is the containerization containerization of their network functions. As you know there was a progress of running network functioning onto bare metal itself with specific hardware than it moved to. VM's and now it's to moving through containers and here the Yukon. We actually saw demo of the proof of concept how to do the five G. fully running on carbonated. That is one of the kind kind of the application. Because at the antenna level you need to have the processing as close to the signal as possible so that you again reduced latency NC and you don't have to push all the data through the network to raise the swap that is the main requirement for five G. or main features of the five G. The second use case for the telcos is to monetize their infrastructure. which they are building for the five and that is to provide mobile edge edge computing platform for all the independent service vendors or other enterprises running their applications? So I can be an enterprise fries which has branch offices and in order to get access from those branch offices to pass processing. I might want to run my applications closer to those branches not necessarily centralized in my data center which might be private cloud one national data center but I might take an advantage of my telco provider either to run the application closer to my branch office and not a very common use cases gaming or augmented reality where you take advantage offbeat as close to the end user with a cell phone or the smart devices possible so that they have the good user experience and then to date on experience instaflex so I understand correctly. Telecom like verizon. They need to build essentially data center infrastructure telecom data center center infrastructure to support five G. for their basic cellular customers and in order to get additional value. Oh you add that infrastructure. They are adding the capability to essentially lease out those resources to enterprises that might need similar functionality to that same five G. infrastructure basically they're already building data centers and they're like well we might as well reuse this for edge computing. That's exactly right amazing. So as red hat you basically have an opportunity to help a telecom like horizon that is not historically thought of itself as a cloud provider to the extent that I understand it become a cloud provider. Essentially yes I would not necessarily called provider but mobile computing platform provider. Absolutely the and any of these telcos or service providers in general. It doesn't have to be Telco. Only it can be Internet service provider as well think of comcast or others that is to raise. Is there infrastructure which they need to build to support five G. we can think also of the other use cases when they want to place a device to the end user premise itself. So you can think of Smart Stadium. It's aware you have broadcasting of different games for example you need a server which needs to run there you you need high bandwidth. You need to broadcast it. So what verizon or other Telcos do they place the server there at the stadium at the end user premise and the a US benefits of their infrastructure behind or s in consumer for example. I'm a comcast user. I have my set top box at home. Currently the setup boxes being used for very specific services for example to get my TV streaming on my screen but but in order to use this device to be more generic we start talking about the universal customer premise equipment to turn these very specific use case oriented devices into more generic computing platforms to turn on your home into smart home and connect the Iot devices devices to it and provide different kinds of applications running there. Okay so that's a very different kind of edge computing. It's very different kind of competing but it is still edge computing. Okay Eh. What role would red hat have in that kind of application? The like. I'm comcast I've given you a dumb set top box and now we WANNA turn into like a smart connected home thing. Comcast is still owner of that server or of the device which is running at your home so they need to run some operating operating system. There they need to run some platform which is enabling to run applications on top of that. And guess what the applications are very often containers so we can and think of for example taken to the extreme Kluber not seen at box so real quick the applications running on my dumb comcast sorry to call comcast dumb calling the box. I'm not calling comcast dumb. Those applications that are running on the set top box. They're running in containers. They might some of them might rerunning depending ending on the vendor interesting. Okay sorry continue. So and then you can think of that device to have a marketplace of different applications which can run at that device. So he doesn't have to the only TV streaming you can now have audio streaming or you can now connect your light bulbs and half the LIGHTBULB manager running on top of that box so beat really generic computing server. which can run any kind of applications and then the Internet service provider can give you? This is the marketplace of APPs these vendors who are contributing there you you can deploy your APP or on your up there. And is that to say that coober netease would be useful as essentially a consumer operating system in that environment or maybe open shift is the operating operating system or is it just a lennox just a single node. You don't actually need to distribute system. You're you need new elites distributes have containers running on the same note. But it's just a single all note it is just a single note in our homes so in our home you probably don't want to have free service to have physical H. A. So so you have one single server which is transformed tobback's which is a single box running operating system which is always the core of everything you need need to enable the hardware in some way and then you need some platform or you need something which is orchestrating the workloads on top of that depending on the level of orchestrations auto healing or other things. You need there then. You need difference of services from for brands to run on

Does the Internet Interfere with Love?

"Does the incident interfere with low. Recently we had what you might call an Internet outage here in New York along with a number of states from the information. I'm getting in my have extended as far as the sand dunes in California but to meet what was striking was the comments people when posting on twitter Assad on the fact that the company that provides Internet service was not a good provider as comments. Like what am I supposed to do now. I have to talk to my wife. My family nick. My kids further compensated. I will not have to go out and socialize others said Missing the time to bench. Wash my shows that idea is that the Internet is taking over social life. It is standing. In the way of interacting with family and friends impossibly New People. Don't get me wrong. The Internet internist is how I do this show how displayed my off in college. Put out the word about the greatest things I do. The incident has probably saved lives lives because inflammation and delivery of medical services can be done much faster. The Internet allows you to learn new things right from your home. Internet allows people to work from home but most people would not complaining about learning new things are how the disruption was causing the possible loss of lives. Maybe one person or two twitter about college exam they were taking or job that could be done because the Internet was down. Some people considered such an emergency. The they were calling the local Police presence police precincts were posting things on twitter like we are not responsible for your Internet service providers lightest and an outage or lack of internet. Service is not an emergency to me. This said that we are so focused on Washington shows that all. Wow this shows are taking over nearly every aspect of human relationships. It is easy to see why it's easy to bench on shows that make no demands they can maybe pl- replayed in. We are Miss Understanding Amiss. Something we could just replay them. We can be in Upper Djaama's here undone we don't have to groom to watch these shows the entertainers without asking anything for us. We can be as little or as much attention it is. We want when we get tired. Concern them off with can be sad angry happy and we don't have to explain our emotions. Do anyone but again. Aren't we giving up the things that we need. The most contact with others conversation love affection and having people who show us that they care about Atas. Will we need them. The most most of US need this to a greater or lesser extent in reality. We don't give it to to our children. Don expected the from them. Just because you grow old if we don't give it to your family don't expect it from them because they are family. This also goes for close friends. If you don't give it to your apartment unexpected from your apartment either. I believe that if we continue to find more comfort in the Internet that we are headed down a lonely road no matter how many dating websites have come and gone and even if you happen to me so one and one of them your emotional context is what makes it work. I do not really believe this is really worked to help you meet the kind of person you're looking for four but it is a fast moving world in people tried to meet others the best way they can. Indiana loves about emotional commitment. Your body can be in a place but if the Internet distracts you to such an extent that you think it is an emergency with when there is an outage than we have to start thinking how much we really value the people.

That's pretty smart to close the digital divide in detroit any more than just wirz from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed kim in for molly would not having solid access to the internet is like competing in a three legged race tied to a cow looking for work. Most applications are online need to check your bank account. Pay bills dell's check medical records do homework. It's all easier if you're online and getting a lot harder if you're not detroit is one of the least connected big american cities according to the national digital inclusion alliance less than half of homes. There have broadband internet that means hundreds of thousands of detroiters stand stand on the losing side of a growing digital divide. It's judge edmunds job to help. Detroiters get online and so them why they need to. He's he's the city's first director of digital inclusion and he says the problem is in just infrastructure. We have several internet service providers and if you actually look at the provider data ninety eight to one hundred percent of detroit is covered with internet access. Sorry issue isn't necessarily internet access internet adoption meaning. What are the bears the technology adoption that are causing detroiters not to take advantage of getting into the home costing one of the big barriers. We look at poverty. Poverty directly exacerbates the digital divide something like the digital divide. That's maybe not well understood by. You know a lot of people a lot of times. When there's this kind of different understanding that there's often like a different language that's understood like is there any example of things that people say that somebody on the other side of the divide just wouldn't get yes when i was on focus groups with public housing residents in cleveland and we kept talking about applications like oh you know download an app download it up and <hes> people were thinking i was talking about job applications and that's such as light example but we've just taken technology and integrated it in and we get it but people don't this task does not sound easy and not cheap. What are you in the city gonna do to expand access us. I've identified five hundred sixty one free wifi sites all throughout the city of detroit that make money to do. I mean i'll be maybe my salary went to knowing. It and these aren't municipal networks. These are your mcdonald's or tim hortons that random nonprofit on the corner that church that has it if you go to any neighborhood where there's a lot of children and there's no library present and there's mcdonalds there. Those kids are going to mcdonald's to do their homework and i'm not saying that the city is saying go to mcdonalds and do your homework rather. It's very interesting to see the way that public wifi and free. Wi fi is driving people to certain places. I would say what's looming over. All of this is the fact that the census next year is going online and so when i have residents namely my older residents gordon were like no. I don't be like this. Are you know i don't feel comfortable during this. What are the implications around the sense. Uh being counted. There's a cast value that it every single resident has mike figure wrong but i believe every resident <hes> it's worth eighteen hundred dollars a year to the census so if you're not counted managing ask them locations around that joshua edmonds is the director of digital inclusion for the city of detroit.

To get broadband to every American, you need to know the rules in all 50 states

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by guideline over seventy. Five hundred growing businesses have chosen guideline for its modern retirement plan that automates the heavy lifting involved in offering a 4. Sign up and get your first three months free visit guideline dot com for details and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Evan Lyle Rush enterprises surprises is a big fan of Michigan as he put it. The future of mobility is going to be decided right here in the state is a planet dot com to find out why that's P.. L. A. N. E. A._T.. Dot Com if you WANNA get broadband access to every state you gotta know the local laws from American public media yeah. This is marketplace tech demystify digital economy. I'm molly would the digital economy as we like to call it over here depends pretty heavily on access access to the Internet and that is still not a solved problem here in the United States over thirty percent of Americans don't have access to broadband Internet which is defined as twenty five megabits per second or higher. That's according to research released Tuesday by the N._p._d.. Group the Pew Charitable Trusts has an initiative should've broad-band definitions like in Alabama for example broadband speed is defined as only ten megabits per second. If your network is busy that's barely fast fast enough to stream net flicks and hi. Def Katherine dewitt manages the Broadband Research Initiative for Pew Charitable Trusts. She told me state policy is a huge deal. When it comes comes to expanding broadband access state policy matters because lack of access to broadband is a national issue but it is felt at the local level and states states have taken a pretty aggressive approach to closing gaps in access particularly over the last five years we've seen a significant uptick in legislation since two thousand fifteen eighteen <hes> and what we can take away from this is not only do state policymakers see and feel that immediate urgency <hes> lack lack of broadband access? They're saying it's important to things like education healthcare and economic developments but they're also saying this. This is what we want our state to look like they're setting goals and then they're laying out a path and a framework for how to achieve those goals. Let's just dive into some of what is in the tool. Some of the different approaches does that states are taking like. Could you give me an example two totally different approaches that states might have taken so going into this research we knew that states <hes> face similar challenges oranges and increasing access to broadband <hes> but we learned that there are also taking similar approaches but adapting them to their needs. That's really where those categories came from. Those groupings things <hes> if you look at goals for example <hes> you have states like Minnesota and West Virginia where they're statewide broadband goals are focused. I'm border to border universal coverage thing you look at a state like California <hes> that has a goal to connect ninety eight percent of the population in each one of its roughly fleet twenty regions. How do you hope that a tool like this can help close the digital divide in terms of broadband access while this tool is actually the first step in <unk> are ongoing research on how states are addressing gaps and broadband access so for us this was about understanding that fifty state landscape of broadband deployment laws ause and it provides the basis for our next level of research which is a deeper examination of how states are addressing those gaps in access. What we hope so is that <hes> users will be able to use this tool to learn what other states are doing and how they're actually doing it. Katherine dewitt manages the Broadband Research Search Initiative for the Pew Charitable Trusts. We've got a link to that new tool and some analysis about spending per state at our website marketplace tech dot Org <music> for some related links so this tool is super new obviously and Pew hopes that policymakers and local governments will jump in and start creating some more analysis and comparison and of course. They'll be publishing their own pieces. The first one that I mentioned there is about how states let's fund their broadband projects whether it's grants or loans or general fund kind of things or some creative funding apparently Illinois makes Internet service providers providers pay into a special offer called the digital divide elimination fund and it uses that to pay for broadband buildouts and in Virginia a legal settlement. Element with tobacco producers is paying to build more Internet. Look I'm not saying this isn't a little walkie over here but it is interesting. Also I gotta be honest. I'm still hung up on that ten megabits per second in Alabama and probably some other states too. I haven't made it through the entire tool yet but Alabama's regulation also says I._S._P.'s can call their upload at speeds broadband at one megabit per second so basically if you're at home trying to upload some photos to facebook or anything to the cloud ever you'd be doing that at speeds ten times slower than the slowest four G. Cell Phone connection set it and forget it because it's GonNa take all night now. The speed question is so controversial that even though Pugh is using the twenty five megabits per second speed guideline which is set by the Federal Communications Commission Network congestion usually means actual actual speeds are nowhere near that fast and again a four g phone connection is faster than that on the best providers. It is such a big discrepancy that while Pew says says twenty one million Americans don't have broadband Microsoft put out its own map of high speed Internet access back in April. It said the real number of people people without appropriately fast Internet access for today's economy is more like one hundred sixty three million in the United States alone.

House leaders have announced legislation to restore Obama era rules that bar internet service providers like AT and T and Comcast from giving preference to some content over others. Those regulations were stripped away under the Trump administration while it's possible Bill will pass the house. It does face a tougher fate in the Senate where Republicans are in control those backing the change to go back to the earlier rules expect net neutrality to be another key issue in the two thousand twenty presidential

From Echo to Ring doorbell and Fire TV, are you comfortable Amazon with controlling your smart home?

"Amazon continues to expand and acquire. And by the way, they're done with the New York thing apparently AFC got her wish and Amazon's not going to build another headquarters in upstate New York. And now, everybody's piston Okaz Cortez for running off a bunch of jobs. But hey, check, you got him on that tax thing. Go you. Amazon acquired the startup. Bureau. E R O. They're a mesh router for improving dead wifi spots in your house. So Google has a version of this now to the Google wifi system, and it's an add on. So you're not changing internet service providers. You just adding this to your network, and it is such expanding and improving your wifi range, if you live in a single level, you know, seventeen eighteen hundred square foot house, and you've got your router someplace fairly central and at a high point you probably won't need this. If you're in a multilevel home, or if you've got your router often, one far corner, or for whatever reason, you can't put your router physically at a high point in the room, these ERO and Google wifi. Mesh networks are fantastic for making sure that you get good coverage all over the house, and they're not crazy expensive. Although era was a was a little bit up there. I think they were to fifty to get in the door on that. They were also according to the folks who are fans pretty privacy conscious and the concern, of course, is that Amazon's gonna do what? Amazon does and they're going to take data from these networks, not necessarily what websites you go to and that sort of thing, but how you use your network how much traffic you've got. And to a certain extent where where your outbound connections are going who are you sharing your data with? So privacy folks are kinda wigged out because this you do a firmware update. And all of a sudden Amazon's in your network when you did not buy that equipment to allow that. But more. So Amazon's got a huge lead on simple, home, automation and smart devices. When you think about it? You've got ring doorbell. You've got your Amazon echo device to take your commands to deal with your smart plugs. You dimmers? All of that about actually about the only thing that I think Amazon doesn't have just total dominion over is fill Phillips Hugh system. This is the smart light bulbs system, and it works with Amazon, it's just not owned by Amazon. But I mean, fire TV. Home security systems microwaves refrigerators being tapped into the Alexa system. So that you can you can ask Alexa. If it's time to go, buy, more eggs. Portel Alexa to order something. That's that's missing from your stock. Now, I'm a fan of the Amazon devices. I think that they work reasonably well reasonably well. And I am concerned for my privacy to a certain extent. I don't really care about Amazon trying to advertise to me something that I might be shopping for anyways. Although they have a fascinating habit of acting as if though you are going to start a collection of whatever it was. You might have bought I bought a Kershaw pocket knife a few months ago. What's a replacement for one that I had the blade broke. And I wanted to have one in hand before I did the whole Kershaw played replacement program. Every ad. I saw on any website that had any advertising affiliation with Amazon was for pocket knives. Okay. I could there are people out there who collect knives. There are people who who might have used for more than one knife or more than one kind of knife. I bought a couple of USB cables for my phone replacement charger cables to back I have been getting ads like I'm going to be in the habit of collecting USB cables as if though I a person who has no history of buying more than two charging cables ever at one time. Suddenly may be interested in buying thousands and thousands of USB cables, so that's a little silly. But okay, whatever who knows some somewhere out there. There's somebody who's really relieved to know then go to Amazon and buy a thousand USB cables.

"December 14th is going to vote on the issue of net neutrality meaning that hey let's keep the internet just this open free space of freeflowing information that everybody if you have a computer and internet service provider you can get access to that information you can get access to the internet at so here's the thing if this net neutrality is killed the access to the internet as we know it will change and here's how it might change if an internet if there is if the internet is completely deregulated right and and internet service providers don't have to necessarily provide you the the fast access what they can do is they can't sort of bundle websites together and they can say all right if you want access to these websites like your streaming like your netflixing your amazon prime and all that you have to pay more if you want to get access to the quote unquote fastlane of the internet than you have to pay more now here's the thing the fast lane of the internet is pretty much like the same speed that you had before but now they're going to make you pay more and personally why i i feel this is just a scary is because i think about how the show started as a podcast back in two thousand six and the outside a loop radiocom that's the show's website actually kind of looks like it was decided in two thousand six but we're working on it we have access to the internet when i started this with anti herman and uh it was great because we could put our product out there and people could access it and i think about not just podcast today but start a business is and people who make their living from online commerce and online retailer whatever that is in jeopardy right now so really this is an important issue the federal communications commission will vote on december 14th you can call your senators so senator durban senator duckworth in illinois and.

"I guess it's kinda like that at actually that's that might be in a useful analogy when you're trying to understand this debate over net neutrality and we were talking about that last week the idea that to bits should flow along the information superhighway without being impeded in any way artificially by let's say internet service provider if if the internet is an information superhighway than the internet service providers kind of the exit ramp how you get how how that stuff going back and forth across the country gets to your home it takes the it takes the exit for your town usa and then the via the internet service provider comes to your house but what if there were it wouldn't that be annoying if uh if there were toll roads across town mike you'd get off the free way and then you'd have to pay a toll to get to your house especially it would be specially annoying if the people who are asking for the toll you are already paying anyway annette then when trucks wanted to come deliver goods to from amazon they would stop them and say look you can't deliver the goods to leo but you unless you pay this toll that's kind of the idea of why we don't like net neutrality is notion that internet service providers which are who are already getting paid by you uh would then ask for more money for netflixing youtuber or or me because i i do podcasting to to get to you.

"Day this is your life livid well progressive medical center daca all right it is show ellison whatever the issue is that i have been following for some time now is the whole net neutrality debate and this is one of those things that you know if you are in the business of providing content over the internet this is of critical importance i want to say content it really is anything whether it's a shopping say or you know video or whatever it is if you are serving up content of any kind on any kind of website to cut stars you want and need trawl internet and the reason you want that is because you don't want people to get so frustrated because your site as well and now complete a transaction now watch a movie not subscribe not read your blog whatever it is and that is the idea behind a neutral internet net neutrality is that the internet service providers cannot currently in the plan that was meant to go into place in the fcc under the obama administration would have treated the internet like a utility meeting you can't charge more some people more for the same service right right you can't create fast lane's you can't say richer people get more heat and then poor people if you pay the rate everybody gets the same rate and everybody gets same man he right or water or whatever it is and that was sort of the same thing for the internet no fastlane's no no special privilege for paying more money that that was the idea behind it well the trump administration of course they got rid of the head of the fcc and put in a new guy and you know said they're going to change all that because they're feeling was that the way that rule was written was too strong and wasn't fair bob la my personal oh opinion is that the lobbyist from the isps are winning and everybody else is losing and it is what it is me know the fcc has this new director how ever the game may be changing a little bit now because amazon has finally decided to get into the fray and say.

"Now in addition with a change of administrations in the united states government you may have heard something about that over the last year or so we're looking at yet another revision of the rules but i'm going to get into all of that a bit later in this podcast another reason all this is important is because the internet is a network of networks that's how it started and that's the way it is now although the details have changed significantly the network of networks doesn't work exactly the same way it did when the internet was a brand new little baby you could make a persuasive argument that the old definition of net neutrality isn't really an accurate argument to make these days and that's because many entities like google or amazon or net flakes have their systems embedded into the infrastructure on the internet in ways that weren't the case in the early days so this gets back to internet service providers these networks that allowed the connections of customers whether those customers are people like you and me if their businesses if there are other isps that are lower down the chain they they're these are the companies that allow the interconnections on the internet so let's take a look at how things used to be an compared to how things are now to kind of understand why the argument net neutrality is changing a little bit first of all no one owns the internet as a whole because the internet is a bunch of different components owned by a bunch of different companies so it's it's not like a car where you could have one person be the owner or even one person be the manufacturer it's a huge complicated machine.
