Net Neutrality is kind of a big deal. I don’t care if you’re a republican, democrat, communist, libertarian, or some sort of weird political party based entirely around getting Marvel to release the next Avengers movie early. This is important. Important enough that I’m posting political shit instead of talking about weird space parasites. Net neutrality helps protect small startups from being quashed by bigger peers, and helps protect weird niche sites (like this one) from getting filtered or slowed by ISPs who’d rather maintain a “family friendly” image than allow their customers to access the content they want.
If you’re an american, please consider supporting net neutrality. Here’s one place with some things about it. Battleforthenet.com has a nice little form set up to send a message to the FCC and congress if you want to be lazy about it.
I’d ask you to strongly consider future candidates’ positions on net neutrality before voting for them, but I think internet regulation is pretty low on every one else’s priority lists. Oh, and also… vote. There’s a reason politicians care a lot about catering to grandma and grandpa’s whims – it’s because they vote.
