1. What happens to the sound at 7:51?
It goes blank. I've tried several times now.

As someone who has no choice BUT TimeWarner, which gives crappy service at expensive costs, I want options. No more monopolies!

I remember when Southern Bell gave the city of New Orleans police dept their old building after Katrina. Then, when the city announced they were going to supply free wi-fi to lure business to the big easy, Southern Bell took their building back! Lame.

3. The actual debate was OVER at 7:51 - Then it was Thom by himself.
This clip was about the debate.

4. Putting this situation in a theoretical event some 200 years ago..
It seems a lot like an event of taxation without representation. Instead of wireless internet lets call it "Tea". That tea was dumped into the ocean as an act to represent the disgust, frustrations and anger of the people. We could also replace the name Time/Warner with "East India Company"

This is starting to happen to us a lot now. PG&E tried to force a county or city out in California to require a 2/3 majority to even establish a public solar power station.
