There’s an interesting idea here for teaching about technological advancement in macroeconomics classes. After thousands of years of a binary code being less efficient, along comes intentional transmission of signals with electricity requiring a brand new language with less characters.

It’s piecemeal results, but the digging estimates that the number of actual women on the site was between 1,500 and 12,000. There were 30 million men with account. That’s 1 woman for between 1500 and 20K men.

What’s wrong with the FCC’s move towards ‘net neutrality’ — the change in regulation of the internet from Title I to Title II? Try this on for size:
For those with short memories, the video refers to the fact that the FCC introduced a policy in 1949, known as the Fairness Doctrine, that it applied to media it regulated under Title II. It took about 2 generations for this policy, set out by unelected officials, to be ruled unconstitutional because it violated people’s rights to free speech under the First Amendment.
