Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

This is a very short article and I bring it to you because I am a firm believer that the Internet and Net Neutrality is the best thing to happen to the human race since the invention of the printing press.  I have grown very fond of the Daily Kos, It reminds me of the days that I worked for the underground press syndicate in the 60's. We brought a US President down and ended a war. For the moment you have that kind of power, But That will soon change if your do not make your voice heard now. Now is the only window you will have to speak out.... or fade quietly into the night of history..

Today, because of the Internet and Net Neutrality, you have the Digital equivalent of the underground press syndicate of the 60's. Left Neutral, the Internet is sure to bring the most enlightened and democratic age in the history on the planet. It is the most valuable asset the millenniums have and must be protected. It is the one thing worth fighting to keep....It is 'your' fight for freedom of speech and press. In this day and time, Aaron Swartz is the first martyr of the millennium generations' Internet Freedom...

Because of my passionate belief in this cause I am a 'kickstart' backer of the award wining Documentary "The Internet’s Own Boy" about Aaron Swartz.  I invite you to join the battle. The Only thing that I am asking is that you share the trailer with as many as you can it will help the Fight for Internet Freedom.

Here is another story on the Kos that has a petition you can read and sign.

The Internet’s Own Boy follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

           Here is the first public showing of the trailer for my friends at the Daily Kos
