There is a Call to Action from the Tech Community for Net Neutrality.

This isn't about government or private sector or anything. It appears to be a noble attempt to request correction of a court decision allowing business to interrogate and modify your traffic for their own purposes versus your intentions in your use.

FYI

We should NOT have expected Internet users to benefit. We all object to any country putting the clamps of individual internet use. Well, the corporations say they should be the ones deciding what they will allow you to use over the wire that you pay for.

Results of our future is now becoming apparent; This just the "tip of the iceberg".

You wont be able to appeal to FCC where they step in and fix things. It now requires laws to enforce good balanced behavior.

Time to start petitioning your lawmakers (known as Congressional Representatives...you know...the ones responsible for laws that benefit the people)

FYI

I have long held the view that the era of the nation state was coming to its end. Nations are based on control of an area with physical boundaries. Multinational corporations and the internet are things of no fixed location. The boundaries are around product lines etc for corporations and around communities of similar interests for the internet. I think we should not assume that the government of one nation will ultimately be able to control what happens. It is more likely that an organization that is not of a fixed location will be able to win out in the long run. Thus I suggest that not just the government of the US should be being asked to do what is right. Those in other nations should ask their governments to join in protecting the rights of everyone.
