The Rule-Making Process
The FCC just changed its rules on regulating the Internet--they're going to treat it as a public utility. A post at Vox takes them to task for being slow and untransparent in their rule-making process. While the process for regulatory commissions like the FCC is a bit different than for agencies like FSA, I have to agree that everyone could gain by revising their process to take account of the Internet. It's a forlorn hope, however--things don't change fast, particularly when you've got lawyers involved.
