Don’t Let Them Break the Internet

This is how websites will look, except not as cute, if big cable companies get their way and charge “fastlane” prices that little guy, indie and independent websites cannot afford.

Look, the net has been a great format for previously unheard voices from blogging to video to music. Bandcamp, SoundCloud, YouTube, WordPress and so many more formats exist that allow us some freedom in what we want to read, watch and listen to. I’m not prepared to allow the likes of Comcast to suck the beauty and crazy individuality of the internet.

Are you?

There are only a few days left for public comment to the FCC about this. Let’s make a ruckus, a virtual riot. Contact your lawmakers and tell them what you want.  Tell them if they side with corporate greed over their constituents, you’ll do more than respond at the polls in November.

Join the Battle for the Net and find out how you can get involved.
