More on Net Neutrality

The editors of the The New Republic have posted a well written piece in defense of Net Neutrality:

Open Net

It looks like the Internet is poised to become just one more item on a long list of things that have been damaged beyond repair during these dark years.

Have you contacted your Senators yet?

Save the Internet!

The Internet has changed my life, and I mean that literally. So whenever our corporate owned Congress starts trying to ruin it - with censorship, taxes, or discriminatory access practices - I take it kind of personally.

The Net Neutrality debate has had my stomach in a knot for a while now. Last week, the House of Representatives capitulated to telephone companies and passed legislation without important neutrality language. This may well mean that the fate of the Internet as we know it rests solely in the hands of the Senate.

There is still time to get involved. Visit Save the Internet, Blog about what's at stake, and tell your Senators about the importance of Net Neutrality.
