Net Neutrality

Tomorrow, July 12th, is Battle for the Net day. If you’re not sure why net neutrality is important, consider this brief write up:

The FCC wants to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, they’ll allow widespread throttling, blocking, censorship, and extra fees.

While I don’t live in the U.S., I do consider the internet to be a shared resource and something we should all look after1. I am supporting this call to action by having the Battle for the Net widget on my site tomorrow. You should too.

  1. Similar to our planet, which is something else the Trump administration are actively neglecting. ↩︎
