Red Sox are in the playoffs! I'm so happy and boy do I have a feeling that this is going to be the year once again where the Red Sox are going to take over the MLB and take it all the way to the World Series 2007. I sure hope so. If that happens, I could care less how much tickets go for cause I sure as hell am going to get some.

In other Red Sox notes, the Red Sox have already clinched a playoff spot in the post-season but as of today (September 27th, 2007) the Red Sox only have to win two more games in order to clinch the division. This would be the first time that this would have happened since 1986.....the year I was born. You see - this is all a sign. The Red Sox will clinch the division, I will end up going to the world Series at Fenway Park and then I will catch that game-winning home run while sitting on the Green Monster....all because the last time the Red Sox did something like this was in the year that I was born. Trust me - it'll happen.

Manny is back, Youk is back but still hurting, and it is 4 games until the end of the regular season and we have the 2nd best record in the MLB. I love this game.

Net Neutrality Precis

Precis # 1

Net neutrality – in general it is another law that is preventing Internet users from doing their normal, everyday things. This time, companies like AT&T and Verizon want to charge people that would like to use the Internet extra monthly fees pending on how many websites they would like to search on a monthly basis. In addition, companies would also like to regulate which websites would be able to have faster access to the Internet based on their paying for the faster service.

For instance, if were to pay a set amount just like some other sites then those sites that paid would be granted some extra boost with their online speed. Many people are against this New neutrality proposal saying that it will have trouble enforcing the new rules, it will cause a lack or innovation and possibly destroy all ease in communication that current users enjoy. A lot like those people, small businesses around the world agree by have similar statements about how it would cause troublesome times between companies, would completely get rid of the communication pluses that are right now thriving and would simply destroy their clients if their businesses were only Internet savvy.

The new service would also prioritize certain websites, programs and applications according to their ease in use as well as the amount of people that previously used the sites, programs, etc. In addition to providing those services at higher speeds because the companies would most likely be paying for that opportunity the companies would also gain more market share because they were one of only a few companies that were being highlighted.

The article also touched on theories that the net is currently used for vast forms of advertising, a wide variety of entertainment many financial transaction sites and places for financial thriving.

Now, assuming that this bill went through, passed and was put into effect by 2008, that would put the world at a near crisis state. The more I think about weather or not this makes any sense at all to me, the more things that I can think that are negative about this entire plan. Just for starters, the plan would mean that Internet would be cut off from normal everyday people that simply only use the internet for one or two sites. This is true because there will more than likely not be a plan for people to use one or two sites and there will probably be a plan starting at around 10 or 15 I am guessing. My reasoning for this is that those people will not e wanting to pay the price I believe is in store for people who will have to end up paying for this. Secondly, this entire plan seems to be causing a “legal” monopoly. By this I mean simply, after this plan is put into effect, assuming that it will be, only certain companies will be used because they will be the only ones being advertised to the mass media, because they will be paying for faster internet privileges they will be used by many other people that realize that this is an opportunity to jump on, they will bringing in new consumers by the thousands day-by-day assuming that nothing goes wrong with their advertising. Lastly, these companies that will be receiving the faster bandwidth will be holding an extremely unfair advantage to other sites that are smaller but still growing on the web. Those businesses that are mostly on the web for instance, eBay, will continue to thrive just fine on the web because they are the predominant bidding and auction web site. Although eBay would still be the most-used site for bids and auctions, sites like, which is a similar auction site and derives almost entirely online, would not thrive nearly as much.

I Love Macs

I have not even had my mac for a year yet and I have learned so much to mention one of my now most favorite hobbies - creating music. I may not be very good at it and I may not being an audio production student but I have spent countless hours playing Garageband as well as many of the other programs that are included with my Mac.

Thanks Apple!

My Red Socks

So, as a Red Sox fan I support the Sox, most of their decisions ad the fact that sometimes they are going to lose. Last nights game, on the other hand, was a complete disappointment.

For all of you who did not get the opportunity to watch the Sox fail, the Red Sox were up by nearly 6 runs the entire game then, late into the night, the Yankees were able to come back and take the 8-7 lead, which is ridiculous, and then eventually win the game.

That win brought the Yankees back to only 4 1/2 games behind the Red Sox for the American league East title.

With all that said, I'm happy to hear the Red Sox at least kept the yanks under good control tonight winning 10-1.

My Initial Impressions on Net Neutrality: How it affects ME

Net Neutrality

Someone please tell me how any of the new proposed Internet restriction and Net Neutrality laws would make any sense at all. Let the hell are they going to help anyone. I believe if anything they are going to create networks of people throughout the world who have their own specific sites that they enjoy going to and that they like to be at once they get online. What I mean by this is, the unnecessary restriction of peoples freedom to surf the web would most likely not only cause many to believe that the US is a simply being more and more cracking down on American's everyday life. How fair is that?!?!?

Also, I would really like someone to tell me why mega-companies like Google and ATT are supporting this kind of montracity. Sure, they would get many more people coming to their site to look at all of the things that make them well....them but, all in all those mega-companies are pretty much paying those people that go to their sites to simply go there. In essence, companies like Google would pay the government or whomever it is that decides to regulate the internet then to allow us to look at the specified web pages that we want to look at.

Well, to me this is the worst thing that congress can do and from reading this blog I hope you are able to get that from me.
