Net Neutrality

WHAT TO DO?
 - talk to people about what net neutrality means and the likely impact of "killing it" - talk to them in real life if you can - talk to co-workers and strangers - your Starbucks barista - everyone
 - call or email the FCC (Chairman Tom Wheeler Tom.Wheeler@fcc.gov / 1-888-225-5322 )
 - call or email President Obama (White House comment line 202-456-6213)
 - call or email Congressional offices (202-224-3121  - or call/visit your local office)
 - comment on news articles
 - use Social Media however you usually do when you are PISSED OFF (Remember STOP SOPA? Do that thing - whatever you did)

Watch this pretty excellent YouTube Video - Hank vs. Hank: The Net Neutrality Debate in 3 Minutes 

WOW - Commissioner JESSICA ROSENWORCEL says DELAY RULE - but this may be a tactic to reduce the impact of citizens - how many times will people come out / sign petitions / etc?  http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2014/db0507/DOC-326963A1.pdf

Also - Commissioner @MClyburnFCC issues support for open Internet - http://www.fcc.gov/blog/preserving-ever-free-and-open-internet
