"It seems the National Cable & Telecommunications Association is spreading a blatant lie in the form of a commercial claiming that the net neutrality act will cost the consumer more and that it is "bad" for the consumer. This of course ignoring how much the cable companies will profit from the act not passing. For some truthful information on the net neutrality act check out savetheinternet.com"This honestly seems too stupid to actually be real. Anyone know for sure?
Nerds are mumbling about the jumbo scam being run on Americans in their name.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the Senate - "Net Neutrality" wound up in Internet forums. Now the public has surprised the geeks and the wonks, finding an interest in an issue not only esoteric and technical, but not even fully formed. Many in the public realize that "Net Neutrality" is the Internet we have already, that we have a right to have, that we got right the first time. That we make the laws to protect our rights, not to rip us off.
We've had the Internet long enough that we're starting to understand intuitively some of its basic technical benefits, like open end-to-end universal access regardless of content or endpoints. Like we understand after a century of driving cars that we can't have ones with the hood welded shut, or requiring one specific brand of gas, or limited to the car company's private roads. Chatting with the geeks on these issues is good for all of us, like swapping the truth about the pleasures of octane and convertibles.
