Tim Wu, a former candidate for lieutenant governor of New York, is most famous for coining the term “net neutrality,” so we can safely assume that companies like Time Warner Cable count as bullies. We’ll be watching his work closely over the next few months. – Adam Clark Estes, Gizmodo

Tim Wu Makes A Bid For Net Neutrality

Tim Wu, having played a central role in the net neutrality debate, and angling to impose stricter merger reviews for already-unpopular New York cable companies, has picked a wise time to enter the political arena. Though he acknowledges he’s new to the art of running for office, he also sees his run as much a test of our “open democracy” as a bid for the open internet . Regardless of outcome, he’s an important voice to put into the political arena. – Katheryn Thayer, Forbes http://ift.tt/1vzXBel
