Retweeted by Mathew IngramAre you new to the internet? @fmanjoo: I'm all for freaking out, but maybe it would make more sense to freak out after we read the documentFCC chairman releases statement saying reports FCC is gutting #netneutrality rules is "flat out wrong."
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI'm going to start a site that takes generally well-understood topics and buries them under mountains of jargon and gratuitous complexity.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@P2chairman @sarahjeong: The courts have repeatedly disagreed, and they have done so for a reason -- in part because all art begins as theftFinally read that Felix Salmon post. Post-text, got it. And Fusion's "going to stay away from anything conventional." Cool story.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThe simple fact is the telecom companies always wanted to treat the Internet like TV and exact a toll for content going through their pipes
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@P2chairman @sarahjeong: The term "intellectual property" is a misnomer. It is not property in any meaningful sense of the wordNet Neutrality dead at 45 http://t.co/XfBlYi6HXh http://t.co/8qcdqP1wvP

Retweeted by Mathew IngramGoogle and Facebook "have become the mass media, and traditional news organizations have become the niche" http://t.co/YoHDEocP3jI wonder when the news business will realize that what's going on with net neutrality is an existential threat to non-favored providers.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramWith the FCC ignoring the principles of net neutrality it looks like I wasn't worried enough when i wrote this http://t.co/nH35Joji1t
Retweeted by Mathew IngramWhat Aereo is doing feels extremely weird, but it feels weird not because they’re doing something wrong, but because copyright law is wrong.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramFelix Salmon is leaving Reuters for the Fusion network because he says the future of media is "post text" http://t.co/Vl8tuxt1aT.@fuzzybluebaron Funny - every Ezra Klein article I ever read felt like being lectured by my precocious nephew about dangers of Triceratops.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramEvery article about @fcc should mention that chair Wheeler is a former cable lobbyist. And former chair Powell is now a cable lobbyist.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramEveryone focusing on "post-text", but it's great that Felix is gonna get weird at a new place. Media needs all the experimenting it can get.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSo I see here on the internet we only get outraged at fake things. My apologies, I’ll see myself out.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mediamogul text is still by far the most efficient way to absorb facts, but not data (or perhaps emotion, for that matter) @mathewi
Retweeted by Mathew IngramAll I can say is, if the future of media is "post text," then Vox and 538 and The Upshot are pretty screwed: http://t.co/9IDIN5PXlYI will continue to primarily provide in-text content.
