Join the Battle for Net Neutrality

Save The Net

Sept. 10th is the Internet Slowdown

Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. To fight back, let’s cover the web with symbolic “loading” icons, to remind everyone what an Internet without net neutrality would look like, and drive record numbers of emails and calls to lawmakers.
Are you in?

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

Save The Kitten Campaign.

It has been brought to my attention that not everyone is bringing their side to the Follow @Dnoch Campaign.

This is not good.

So, in light of that, a New campaign has been started. Either follow @Dnoch on Twitter or the below kitten dies.

Look at the image, feel the image, live the image:

Follow @Dnoch or the kitten dies.

Here’s the deal, skippy:

Either follow @Dnoch on Twitter.com or we replace the cute little kitty teddy with this:
