Net neutrality and newspaper op-eds

Posted by Ryan Blethen

Two op-eds ran in today's Opinion section of the Seattle Times are worth checking out. One deals with network neutrality, the other with the future of newspapers.

Michael Weisman, a Seattle attorney who deals with telecommunications law, has a nice piece about network neutrality. He explains the issue in a very easy to understand language. No easy task. I have been writing about net neutrality for more than a year, and still struggle to come up with a good definition. Weisman's op-ed can be found here.

Alex Alben, a frequent contributor to our pages, penned a column about what newspapers can do to survive. His assessment is smart and on point. It can be found here.
