FCC Chairman Kevin Martin recently said that he is willing to drop the idea of filtering out adult content if it will make his free wireless broadband proposal move forward. He told Ars Technica, "I'm saying if this is a problem for people, let's take it away. A lot of public interest advocates have said they would support this, but were concerned about the filter. Well, now there's an item in front of the Commissioners and it no longer has the filter. And I've already voted for it without the filter now." In order to become a reality, the other commissioners at the FCC would need to approve the revised proposal and then send it to congress. Martin wants to auction off a wide swath of spectrum and require that the winners provide free access to wireless broadband (768Kbps) Internet.

I am not saying this guy is a genius in anyway. However, the push to have everyone wireless in the future makes this viable.
