Geek Links of the Week
John Oliver and most of the internet is behind net neutrality. Leading civil rights groups are throwing their lot in with Big Telecom because net neutrality will “harm communities of colour.” I think my brain just shut down from the sheer stupidity of that statement. [The Nation]
Big Telecom is also buying off people to troll articles in support of net neutrality. You know, if they spent less on lobbying, they could spend that money on better infrastructure, higher speeds or lower prices. That would mean that those companies are run by people with brains though. [Vice]
Dial-up might be dead but don’t tell AOL. They’re still making money off of it. [Quartz]
Microsoft isn’t planning a second major update for Windows 8. It looks like they’re going all-in on Windows 9. [Forbes]
Could Galaxy Quest finally get a sequel? Probably not but it’s fun to dream. [/Film]
