Old net geezers play trip-you-up

Orlowski’s review of the Grand Old Geezer smackdown is spot-on:

Comment The rolling net “neutrality” debate brought two of the internet’s most distinguished elder statesmen together in mortal combat this week. The two gentlemen, Vint Cerf and Dave Farber, said they agreed on most things. But where they didn’t, they tried to pull the chair away just as their opponent tried to sit down.

Farber had the factrs on his side, but he’s not nearly as smooth as the well-trained Cerf so it wasn’t apparent.

Debating tip for Farber: Don’t make your strongest points as “asides”, develop them full on.

Comment for Cerf: You’re the intellectual equivalent of polyester, dude. Thanks.
