Saving the Internet with strange bedfellows
The SaveTheInternet.com campaign (complete with excellent explanatory video in the Echo Chamber) has taken a new and interesting turns in the last few days. The coalition to stop Congress from destroying Net Neutrality (keeping the Internet a level playing field for all businesses and individuals) has added members from the left, right, middle and apolitical parts of the spectrum, including Craig Newmark of Craigslist, Gun Owners of America, the United Church of Christ, Game Overdrive, MoveOn, Center for Digital Democracy, Afro-Netizen and more.
Congress is getting ready to sell out your Internet and make the services you use now without blinking an eyelash have to pay protection money to ensure easy access to the backbone and other tier providers (who might be spying on you, but hey, that's another issue). How are your representatives voting? Find out who they are here, and call them today. You can also use this form to send your representatives a message through the coalition website.
