What Is Net Neutrality?

The term net neutrality was first introduced to the world by Tim Wu, a Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, in an essay he wrote in 2002.

The FCC’s 400-page document was created ruling that all internet traffic or data should be treated equally and fairly by all internet service providers (ISPs). The document on net neutrality outlined how all ISPs would be unable to block or reduce bandwidth for some content and not others, it also outlines how ISPs could not set a higher priority for some company’s downloads or impose fees on companies to permit them to increase download speeds.

aviation technology in actionIf you count kite flying, then the history of aviation is more than 2,000 years old. Hot air balloons arrived in the 18th century and then came gliders, which were the precursor to the “heavier than air” craft that we fly around in today.

Since the first short-powered flights in the early 20th century, the changes in aviation technology have been plenty and groundbreaking. Today there are stealth planes and drones, which have both been created through advanced engineering. There is also a revival of the airship, which has been redesigned for the 21st century to provide air access to places that are difficult to reach by plane.
