Is anyone else bothered by the EU *fining* a company retro-actively for something that is *not* clearly a violation of anti-trust rules.
The EU can certainly decide to impose these conditions moving forward, but retroactive fines are just a bureaucracy run amok.
More fundamental temporal re-ordering: Sentence first, trial later.
Given that Backpage merely supports these activities, rather than committing them directly, would there be major irreparable harm if we went through the formality of proving their guilt before seizing their property?
It's not like proving the case is going to be difficult.
In the same way that UK and EU citizens already residing in the other domain will not have to pack their bags in exactly one year the obvious solution would have been to stop accepting *new* registration requests from UK citizens, but to allow already registered .eu domains to remain.
If I had been a UK citizen I would definitely have voted to Remain, but the EU is just being petty here.
Ending legal monopolies does not lower the cost-per-mile of providing service in rural communities.
It barely pays to provide service to low density areas when you get 100% of the local market.
Competition will not cure that, although it would be useful in most urban markets.
As a minority party Democrats can propose schemes like this with impunity. Once they have the
majority back they'd have to answer questions on why we're spending more per broadband customer
for rural voters than we do for urban voters. But you don't have to answer questions like that for proposals
that will never even get voted on.
The description makes architects sound like isolated theorists.
in my experience the most crucial role of an ARchitect is to be able to discuss the same project with
Product Management, Software Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Project Management and Patent Lawyers.
Successful projects need all fronts firing in somewhat aligned directions, and all to frequently the archtect is the only one communicating with all groups.
There is far more work in *communicating* a broad design than there is in creating the design.
