   You're speculating that ITIF gets funding from Comcast, and therefore
   guessing I'm singing Comcast's song. But you don't know whether Comcast
   actually is an ITIF sponsor, just as you don't know whether Google,
   Intel, and Microsoft are ITIF sponsors. And then you're speculating
   again regarding the relationships between sponsors and fellows.
   Paul, it's obvious you don't know what you're talking about re:
   Internet regulation policy or the nature of DC think tanks, so why you
   you just STFU rather than embarrass yourself further?

One of the things I like about e-mail lists is learning things about myself
that I never knew before, especially regarding my occupation. For the last 9
months or so I've been working part-time with a Washington think tank in an
analyst capacity, not as a lobbyist, and not on the Comcast payroll.

You neglected to mention that the "think tank" (where I'm from in
Houston, we call them lobbys) is funded by Comcast, among other big
cable/telecom players.

Drive Slow,
