Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality (by LastWeekTonight)

A brilliant overview and critique of Net Neutrality (“the only two words more boring in the English language are ‘featuring Sting’”). Especially if you’re American, please do me a personal favor and just watch. Then go here (and keep trying – don’t let the site crashing keep you from having your say).

The Verge has an article on how to file a comment.  http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/15/5720730/how-to-comment-on-fcc-net-neutrality-proposal 

The proceeding number for the Net ‘Neutrality’ proposal is 14-28.

Email the FCC at openinternet@fcc.gov, an email address they have set up with the anticipation of getting a huge buttload of feedback on this particular issue.

So far, the FCC has received more communications in response to this proposal than they have to any issue except Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction.’  I think we can do better than that.
