Please take the time to think about what the internet means to you. Today is a day to start workign to stop the threat to Network Neutrality. Big Business Telecom companies are lobbying Congress very heavily to allow a two-tier Internet. What is that? Well basically, it will let these large companies buy speed and accesability. They will control the internet by providing a high-speed path to their sites while small sites, like food blogs, will be so slow or totally blocked. This is a totally different issue than Internet access like DSL or Dial Up.
See Accidental Hedonist or Chez Pim for more details, and please sign the petition to preserve network neutrality at Save The Internet and find easy ways to contact your Senators and Newspapers.
