  • So far google news has been a good source of content updates.
  • Blogs have not been nearly as fruitful as I would have originally hoped. Gathering info on ISPs is difficult because everyone hates them and loves to bitch about them. This is of little consequence to the project. Need to find a way to filter out good information from these sources, unsuccessful so far…
  • Network Neutrality is going to be a big part. Probably the biggest current issue.
    • Only place directories have been useful so far
  • Need to find out the names of major ISPs in other first world countries. Who is servicing, lets say: Canada, Australia, England
  • Deep web going to be most helpful for history (obviously). Not so good for current events (again, not a big surprise)
  • Need to decide on how technical to get and at what level
    • Need to do the most basic explanations mentioned on the start page (YES)
    • Need to go any further in description of how the internet works on a broad level (??)
    • Need to explain how then a consumer gets the internet, say in to his house? This involves ISPs so some info may be good
