Donald Trump doesn’t want to talk about the Russians. We know this, and it’s pretty clear why. But yesterday he showed a new side of himself: Internet guru.
I think we ought to get on with our lives. I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what’s going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind of security we need.
Why, I haven’t heard such incisive and insightful commentary on the nature the Internet for over a decade, when Alaska Senator Ted Stevens held forth during a hearing on a net neutrality bill.
And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on, it’s not a big truck. It’s a series of tubes. And if you don’t understand, those tubes can be filled, and if they’re filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line it’s going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material.
And what happens to your own personal Internet? Just the other day an Internet was sent by my staff at 10:00 in the morning on Friday—I got it yesterday. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially.
And here was Jon Stewart’s take, which launched the Stevens meme into the stratosphere.
Moral of the story? Don’t let creepy old guys give opinions about shit they know precisely nothing about.
