More on Net Neutrality

Again via David, there’s another campaign to get Congress to protect the net: Don’t Mess With The Net. They have a blog to keep you up-to-date on developments and campaign efforts, the obligatory letter to Congress, and if you have a blog yourself you can join their list of supporters.
Further update: I couldn’t find the text of the COPE act because it’s still in commitee; in comments below, Ralf points to the Benton Foundation; they have their own summary and what seems to be a pdf of the bill (scroll to bottom of page). I don’t know anything about the Benton Foundation, so caveat lector.

  1. Some interesting Benton reading:
    http://www.benton.org/index.php?q=about/history
    Founded from funds of an interesting character after his death in 1973, based on his will.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Benton
    Politically active as well as strongly focused on knowledge culture.

    He seems to have been quite a threat to the cancer stick money makers.

    Probably good timing to get out of the Encyc Brit game when they did. Hats off to them for that decision.
