Save The Internet
No kidding. In Congress, as of now, there is a bill being pushed to effectively end Network Neutrality. Net Neutrality is, to borrow a phrase from savetheinternet.com, "The First Amendment" of the Internet, ensuring that giant companies like AT&T and Verizon can't restrict your access to some websites. Without this, any sites they don't like will load slower, or not at all. Therefore, this would end the Internet as we know it, changing the greatest free speech mechanism the world has ever seen into little more than a corporate pigsty. I do not believe this dire threat can be ignored. But there is hope. On Capitol Hill, more than 1,500 bloggers have spoken out, and for the first time, Congress is listening.

The fate of the Internet is in your hands.
