"AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast executives aren’t going to like Bernie Sanders’ new broadband plan."

"The wide ranging proposal, released Friday morning, would all but demolish big telecom’s stranglehold over the broadband and media sectors, unwinding decades of unrelenting consolidation, imposing hard new limits on how much broadband providers can charge for service, while opening the door to significantly broader availability of community broadband."

"The proposal pulls no punches when it comes to the U.S.’ broadband woes."

I was a registered Macintosh developer (pay dues, get info from Apple) in the 1990s when I lived in Japan. Macintosh systems 6 and 7 were in no way open or free. They hadn't started calling it MacOS yet.

Trivia: the original Macintosh system was written on the Lisa in Pascal (with bits in assembly). Even in the 1990s, all the code snippets from Apple were written in Pascal. Anyone else even remember the Lisa?

Indiana wants to make it harder for trans people to get drivers’ licenses / LGBTQ Nation

Right now, anyone who wants to change their gender marker on an Indiana ID has to bring “an amended birth certificate or a letter signed and dated by a doctor” to the state’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). But the newly proposed rule will add needless hurdles and costs for trans people who just want an ID that matches their gender identity.
