PC World's Most Anti-Tech Orgs In America


Making the list are:
Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences (MPAA)

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA)

The big phone companies

Progress and Freedom Foundation (PFF)

Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA)

National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)

Personally for me, I would have included the major cable companies and the National Cable Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and dropped PFF. The major cable companies have prevented the evolution of two-cable and broadband services far more effectively than the telcos have, and have contributed as much as the telcos to blocking network neutrality.

I consider PFF a prefectly reasonable organization that is trying to promote its world view. I just happen to think they are completely, utterly and totally wrong. They, unsurprisingly, feel the same way about me.
