More gems on “belief” as “social performance”. Crucial perspective on the “meaning” of “belief”. Remembering the roots of the word as “By-life” or “what you live by”
"Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler is scrambling to change his “open Internet” proposal after a torrent of criticism from Internet giants, startups, venture capitalists, public-interest groups and consumers."
