MAX is back!
Since it’s clearly a GIANT vs. GIANT debate, I have some trouble taking it too seriously. So stand by for a completely trivial observation. Tonight on The News Hour, PBS’s big nameplate, the spokesman for the Google, Yahoo, “big net” side was PAUL MISENER, Vice President for Global Public Policy, Amazon.com,
Here’s the news. Mr. Misener is a dead ringer for Max Headroom! He’s a good talker and a smart guy, holding up his side’s side really well. But he looks like MAX HEADROOM. What can I say? Is this perfect? Based on this and this alone, I am on the side of the mega-web sites in this argument.
Am I right? Is this Kismet? How can anyone still be on the side of the telcos and cablecos?
Misener can be seen at:

I’ll get back to righteous indignation tomorrow… or some day soon
