A Word On Net Neutrality

If it weren’t for the Internet, I wouldn’t have a lot of things: A tribe of people who really get me, friends that I will have for the rest of my life, and my book.

But the Internet we all know and love is in danger. The new head of the FCC is working to dismantle net neutrality. Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. “Title II” of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)

We cannot allow this to happen or it will destroy the Internet that we know and love (and love hate). Title II helps the web foster creativity and innovation, to keep doing what has been doing since it’s inception. Let’s not let big corporations take over. Please send a letter to Congress and the FCC by going here: Battle for the Net .
