I can hear the music video now, playing in my head. The song is from The seminal New Wave band of the 70's, The Talking Heads, and it's "Burning Down the House" as the AT&T network goes down in tatters all around a bunch of stunned and wide eyed executives in Dallas and Atlanta.
While there's a ton of humor/sarcasm in the FSJ post, in reality the points all hit the mark. So, do you wonder why Apple and Google both are both lobbing laying down tracer fire at the FCC with their current antics? Do you question why Skype doesn't want to be called a telecom company? All three are doing all they can to distance themselves from the likes of AT&T....and for good reason.
