[Commentary] The Federal Communications Commission's website is painful to use. There's hope it could be upgraded -- here's how we could create FCC 2.0, using features of social networking. Basically what would happen is if you're an individual or an organization that wants to comment on an FCC proceeding, you sign up for an account, which opens up a slew of features including: 1) Easy comment/reply submittals, 2) FCC proceeding tracker, 4) More robust reply system, 5) Commenter ratings, 6) Commenter classifications, 7) Public requests for information, 8) Deputize some commenters, 9) Empower some commenters as moderators, 10) Consumer complaint section, and 11) Regular video updates.
