Here’s a reading (MP3) of a my latest Guardian column, Internet service providers charging for premium access hold us all to ransom, which tries to make sense of the disastrous news that the Federal Communications Commission is contemplating rules to allow ISPs to demand bribes from publishers in exchange for letting you see the webpages you ask for.

There’s a useful analogy to the phone company that I’ve written about here before: you pay for your phone service every month. The pizza place on the corner also pays for its phone service every month. When you want to order a pizza from Joe’s Corner Pizzeria, you call their number. If their phone isn’t engaged, it rings and you get to place your order. If they get more orders than they can handle on one line, they buy a second line, a third, even 10 lines to take their orders. Provided one of those lines is free, your call goes through to someone when you ring.

But what if your phone company decided that the way to bring in higher profits was to go around to all the pizza places and shake them down for “premium” access to “their” customers? If Joe’s Corner Pizzeria turned them down, your call to Joe’s might get a busy signal, even if there were plenty of free lines at Joe’s place. Meanwhile, an order to the monied, tasteless sultan of global cardboard pizza-ite, that is, the company who has plenty of money for “premium” access – is easy to reach, because your phone company has promised them that every call will be put through.

The thing is, Joe’s is paying for its lines. You’re paying for your line. The phone company exists solely to connect people to the numbers they dial. But because there are “natural monopolies” in phone service (because there are only so many mobile frequencies and underground cable space), they can abuse their position to extort additional payments from the services you want to talk to. And the more popular a service is, the better it is, the more the ISP stands to profit from this racket.

some high school au’s that always get ignored in favor of badboy/nerd tropes that people should write

  • i was the only bassoon/oboe/sousaphone/other in band before you transferred to this school and i don’t know if i like you in my territory au 
  • we fucked up our schedules the first three years and now we’re the only seniors in this sophomore class au
  • sorry there’s an odd number of people in this class and i have to be the third wheel in your paired project au
  • we’re both the leads in the school play and we hate each other au
  • this is an elective i don’t care about but you’re obviously very into it and i’m sorry about my lack of enthusiasm au
  • there is only one solo i want in choir this semester and i will crush you in order to get it au
  • we both missed class and now we have to take care of this stupid sack of flour together au
  • you work at the crummy pizza place around the corner from the school and i eat there three times a week because of basketball practice au
  • your friend’s locker is right next to mine so i’m just going to awkwardly pine after you while they get their books for class au

y'all are missing out on some of the best high school scenarios
