I think my brother might have been surprised to learn, when we were planning this video, that I'd never actually read Where the Wild Things Are. I thought it was a book, like Where the Red Fern Grows, but it turns out it's a very short children's book, the kind I read to Lilly before she goes to bed now.
He gave me a copy for my birthday recently (the timing worked out nicely that way) and I was sad to realize that reading a book like that for the first time when you're 34 isn't the same as reading it when you're 8 or 9. I was like, "What is UP with this kid? His poor parents!"
After last week, I thought I was done covering the Time Warner Cable bandwidth story for a while. Their change to "consumption-based billing" won't start in Austin until October and that's a long time -- a lot could happen between now and then.
Trying to let it roll off my back, but given the energy I've put into making people aware of what Time Warner is doing and how it will affect customers (I am one of them), it's bizarre to hear that I'm somehow defending them or justifying tiered Internet pricing. I should probably leave those comments alone, but in recent months I find I'm not able to and would rather risk pissing people off than letting them think they're right. Journalistic brio or character flaw? You decide.
