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. (Source: http://www.commondreams.org/views06/0429-28.htm, a Common Dreams news article.) by going to www.savetheinternet.com, you can sign their petition to let your congressmen and -women know what you think of the COPE Act (Which effectively reduces Net Neutrality to a meaningless hinderance). The fate of the Internet is in your hands.

One good way to save the internet is to give power to the people. Support movements that are worth while like ortho-floss. They have a program that regular folks can help develope floss pick for braces and make $$ while you do it. check out this page ortho-floss.com/buildabrand.htm

Hi Balo. Read your posts with interest - glad you like Space Traders Unlimited. I wrote that one a long time ago and I am astonished it is still circulating in the States. There was going to be a sequel but Methuen pulled out of the deal. Ah well.
