Save the Internet

For those of you that are in the US (unlike myself) I thought you would be interested to read about the ongoing battle between the Goliath Telecom Companies and groups like http://www.savetheinternet.com/.

I would say, in simple terms Net Neutrality bills aim to stop the enormous telecom companies from deciding what you can access.

Take a look at the site and if you have time look at the video I posted in this article : http://www.significant-media.com/article/9

I got an email (mailing list) today from the guy behind savetheinternet.com and it sounds as if an important vote is going down today :

Here's the latest from the Senate Commerce Committee, where a "mark-up" on several amendments to Senator Stevens' Telecom Act began today at 10 a.m.: The Snowe-Dorgan Net Neutrality amendment will probably come before the Committee by mid-to-late afternoon. If successfully passed, the amendment would put Net Neutrality language into the massive Telecommunications Act. This is critical.
