Re: Karl?

That's kind of what I wrote. The engineers get a technical voice, but the lawyers make the rules legally defensible.

Originally, the FCC was a mish mash of great thinkers, great engineers, lawyers, Doctors and just SMART, ACCOMPLISHED PEOPLE. Now it's solely lobbyists and lawyers stopping by on their way between think tank or K-Street employment.

I know the history, and I'm not disputing it. I support a good "mish mash" of thinkers, engineers, lawyers, PhD types, and "smart, accomplished people". As I'm sure you're well cognizant of, we most likely won't see that again as long as politics reign and money talks.

You are correct sir! Other reforms need to happen first.

Not the way I read it here... I got more of a "everything's fine, please move along.... Nothing to see" vibe from what you said...

I left out the part about ensuring the lawyers make rules defensible, but I stated that the engineers should definitely have a voice. How did you discern "everything is fine here, nothing to see"?

They very well should have a voice in the matter, but they shouldn't be responsible for drafting policy.

And that's why it's proposing to regulate the Internet. Google spends a lot of money on K Street nowadays, and some folks seem to want to cash in.

That's currently how things seem to be drafted, so that's all that I meant. I think the layers and marketing department give more input on these matters than the engineering department. No slam on attorneys and marketing people intended...

As an Engineer we don't get squat. The Business Suits dictate, so please spare me on letting the Engineers design and implement. The leash is very short.

This is about the way the FCC "should" function to draft rules and policy, not how it may or may not be operating currently. I have an engineering background too, so I believe I have a decent understanding of how things tend to work.
