Yeah, I hear ya Dogbert. Apologists were busy explaining that Justices employ smart young lawyers to clerk for them who doubtless can explain technology. Kinda makes ya wonder who'll be deciding these cases huh?
Email has been around now for 39 years. Seems like someone on the court might have grasped its nuances by now. What a bunch of bright bulbs Reagan et al has left us with.
There actually are people who do not spend their lives on the internet, twitter and cell phones. I am surprised at some of the questions but I would also rather they ask than guess.
You don't need to understand the differences between a email and pager. Also on the concept of service providers. It doesn't scare you one bit that people are deciding cases about the internet and have not a clue what it even is?
Which is why I am glad that they asked. I have always been a firm believer that the only truly stupid question is the one you do not ask.
Yes, I'm glad they asked too. However, just because you get the answer does not mean you fully comprehend what the implications of such a case on the internet could be.
And the fact they had to ask such basic questions tells me that their knowledge on the subject is not exactly vast.
No I wouldn't call it vast. I trust they have a firm understanding and even a few demos from their staffs before ruling.
Everyone knows the internet is not a big truck. It's a series of tubes.
This is pretty bloody depressing.
this is quite scary, espeically with shit like net neutrality and 4th amendment rights applied to email and such being hot topics of the day.
