Briefly Bitcoin - 1/16/14

Your select guide of bitcoin interest since the last time I posted this

* The U.S. courts basically killed net neutrality, effectively giving big Internet companies the right to cut deals with big media companies to throttle the Internet to their advantage through pricing and access. Just check out these Reddit comments to get a picture of a future of companies picking Internet winners and losers. Very sad. Hope there are more appeals left to straighten this out.

*Further adding to my sadness as a Seattle Supersonics fan, the Sacramento Kings become the first pro sports team to accept bitcoin. Now I've got more reasons to care about them besides former UW stud Isaiah Thomas (can you tell I'm from Seattle??).

*Oh look: Apple's longstanding bitcoin hatin' is because they want all the money for themselves. I'm sure nobody saw this coming...

* Not sure what they're doing over there at Circle, but they're certainly winning the executive arms race before their release as some sort of bitcoin financial services company.
