Today's the day: Fight for Net Neutrality
Today is an internet-wide day of action to support Net Neutrality.
Net Neutrality is under severe attack by the FCC and the Trump Administration. Only sustained action will save it. And if it falls in the US, will it be long before the rest of the world follows?
Net Neutrality is already being eroded. Virgin proudly tells me that I'm not charged mobile bandwidth when I use Twitter; other providers offer similar services for Facebook or Netflix. Seemingly a bonus, these offers are really a minus: they lock in the present winners, and make it difficult for the next generation of innovations to emerge.
Unless we act now, people will look back on our days as 'The Golden Age of the Internet'.
Do something now! It takes less than ten minutes. Details here.
