Maybe you have heard about this, its been discussed in federal legislation for a couple years now.  I just stumbled across this video that gives a rather rudimentary, yet clear and accurate explanation of ‘Net Neutrality’

Take a look.  If you haven’t heard about it, you should pay attention.  The Internet has experienced tremendous growth and advances w/out having the bureaucratic hand of government getting its sticky fingers on it.  Internet Service Providers today provide unfettered access to the internet (which is one of the things this legislation aims to establish), and work with law enforcement voluntarily and freely to provide information used to convict people doing things that are illegal.

This is another instance of government trying to edge its way into an industry that does not need regulation, to placate lobbyists and establish new taxes.

If you haven’t heard about this, do some research on your own, and read up on it.  Then write your congressperson.
