Are Social Media Services “State Actors” or “Common Carriers”?

Yesterday, I did a videoconference with Prof. Eugene Volokh (UCLA Law) discussing if and how legislatures could regulate Internet services. Watch the video. Prof. Volokh and I usually agree on most things, but this time we may reach different conclusions. I think Prof. Volokh might be open to the idea that a legislature could declare social media to be a “common carrier” and impose associated must-carry obligations. In contrast, I’m a hard no, and I hate the question because it only matters if ...

Watch Prince Perform “Purple Rain” in the Rain in His Transcendent Super Bowl Half-Time Show (2007)

Prince is having an afterlife the opposite of most rock stars. Where the years after death seems to bring our gods down to human size, the more stories I hear about Prince, the more I am convinced he was either beyond human or one of the very few constantly working at maximum potential. But not only that, he also helped others realize their own potential, especially members of his touring band. I hope that’s your takeaway after having watched not just this mini-doc of his 2007 Super Bowl...
