Warnerís Plan to Ruin the Internet
The senator has 20 points. Even Woodrow Wilson didnít need more than 14.

"Warnerís 23-page report. Itís filled with impossible-to-implement mandates (identify bots), silly bromides (addressing the safety and security of at-risk individuals), and dangerous power grabs (updating Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act). If even a handful of these proposals become law, faceless bureaucrats would control the internet instead of energetic entrepreneurs. No one would win under this new internet. "

"As Axios notes, thereís one proposal that isnít on the table: actually breaking up big tech companies. And a Republican-controlled Congress doesnít seem likely to act on them in the near future; Republicans have talked about regulating tech companies, but Warnerís proposals skew toward Democratic concerns. Itís more plausible that weíd see government agencies adopt some elements of the proposals independently or for some of the proposed rules to pop up as bills in individual state legislatures."

Economics & Investing / Starbuck Says Yes to Crypto
« on: August 06, 2018, 02:50:00 PM »
Starbucks will use a technology developed in conjunction with Bakkt and Microsoft. There has been no exact date given regarding when Starbuckís consumers will be able to use their cryptocurrency to purchase at their shops, but the acknowledgment from Starbuckís has certainly sparked interest and may spur on other large retailers to enter the cryptocurrency sphere.
