Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
IF YOU LIVE IN AMERICA, PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATOR TODAY AND VOICE YOUR SUPPORT FOR NET NEUTRALITY! It’s easy, it’s simple, it’s not scary. I literally just got off the phone with a representative from my California senator’s office letting them know I support Net Neutrality. It wasn’t difficult and the whole process took less than 2 minutes.
Net Neutrality may seem boring or unimportant, but it affects every single person who uses the internet in this country. My job and career are dependent in a large part on having access to websites supported by smaller budgets, and without Net Neutrality reliable access to those sites would be threatened. I want to create jobs, I want to be a productive part of this economy and of this country, but if the FCC is allowed to create fast and slow lanes for internet traffic my opportunity to do that, along with millions of others across the country, will be under fire.
Please email or call your Senator today and urge them to ask the FCC to classify internet service providers as Title II. Don’t let the open internet become a page in the history books.
I don’t usually reblog, but this is important.
