One of the oldest head-shakers on the web, Gene Ray's Time Cube, has disappeared. It is inevitable, I suppose, that classic content like this will fade away (we'll REALLY take a hit when archive.org's Wayback Machine goes byebye), but we don't have to be happy about it. Today we mourn as the oldschool web gets another slice closer to the death of a thousand cuts.

In the UK, many items on Amazon suddenly appear for a price of one penny. Retailers rail, while Amazon blames third-party software.
So the boss at work installed a filter that prevents you from visiting Davelog.com on the company time. Fret not and don't rely on just one proxy service because the filter gets updates and begins to block them as well. You now have access to hundreds of sites that will allow admittance for you.

John Oliver tells it like it is: If you rely on advertising to pay for your broadcast or website, you end up beholden to them. Of course, he makes the point much funnier than I can.

There's a new app for your IOS/Android device that only serves one function: to send the word "YO" to your internet pals. It's obviously more clever than I can see, because they just pulled $1m in funding for the app.

In which Hank debates Hank on one of the most important debates in the United States today, whether to keep the internet open or to allow cable companies to open fast lanes (and slow lanes) for different parts of the internet to flow through.

Tell the FCC that they should reclassify broadband internet as a telecommunications (or "Common carrier") service. Right now broadband is regulated like TV or radio, which doesn't make sense.
This is a public comment for the public record... official government stuff... so you'll have to include your actual name and address.
You can also email the FCC directly here:

One of my longtime favorite places on the web, fazed.net (.org is for fascists), has announced it will be shutting down shortly after the turn of the year. In an oldschool internet dying the death of a thousand cuts, losing fazed is a huge gash indeed.
