The American Internet Should Remain Free
Do you think the internet is important?
It has given me much over the last several years. I have made new friends, educated myself, found fun things to do and share, and been amazed at just how crazy/sad/caring our society can be. My future career and the very livelihood of millions of people depends on the infrastructure, technology, and freedom of the internet.
I don’t generally jump on bandwagons and I’m rarely vocal about causes. For this I will make an exception.
There are some crazy ideas being tossed about in Congress and the Senate right now. These have a huge potential to be poorly interpreted, cripple freedom of speech on the internet, and set our society back in time. While I understand the desire for large corporations to “protect” their “intellectual property,” I value individual freedom more.
What can you do?
First, watch this video.
Next, take a few minutes to contact your legislators and express your view about the laws being considered.
Let’s keep the internet free.
