Call To Action!

net neu·tral·i·ty
1. the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

As you may have seen, today has been a call to action for net neutrality, to stop the rollback of the internet. Do you want a fair & equal internet, where all sites are treated the same, where the time it takes to load a page remains the same for Amazon as it does for an individual person's handmade jewelry page, remains the same for NBC's page as it does for small independent news bloggers, remains the same for HarperCollins as it does for self-publishing authors' personal pages? Should the internet be ruled by who can pay the most or should all sites be equal? Should the internet be ruled by corporations or should everyone have the chance to utilize the amazing tool that is the internet on an equal basis?

If you stand with net neutrality, take this call to action today! (and if you didn't get to it today - some of us had wall to wall appointments today! - then try tomorrow. It's alright, you can still join call!)
