Net neutrality day of action

Last Wednesday was a net neutrality day of action. The FCC is  accepting public comment about its decision to allow internet service providers to give priority access to some internet traffic over others. This is, of course, a worrisome direction. While prioritizing, say, streaming video packets over reddit comments might seem innocuous, it in effect grants ISPs the ability to make their own decisions over what content gets prioritized. And those decisions can be colored by politics and money. Net neutrality is a means to maintain equal access.

Okay, I missed out on the actual day, due to travel. Today, I submitted my comments to the FCC in defense of net neutrality, through this ACLU site. It’s exactly the kind of message that ISPs might some day try to put on an internet slow lane.
