THE INTERNET MUST GO!
HAVE THE NAGGING FEELING THAT THIS NET NEUTRALITY STUFF IS PROBABLY RIDICULOUSLY IMPORTANT?
Still can’t bring yourself to read about it?
Join us Sunday, August 10th at 7:30 pm EDT for a special screening of the mockumentary film THE INTERNET MUST GO, a movie that will tell you what you need to know in 30 minutes, while making you laugh, instead of boring you to tears.
During the screening we’ll be running a live Twitter feed so viewers can discuss the film and the issues in real time: #TheInternetMustGo
Stick around after the film for a discussion on the issues at hand moderated by Anna Holmes (founder of Jezebel), Gena Konstantinakos (filmmaker), Larry Lessig (Internet activist and author), Alexis Ohanian (reddit co-founder), Nate Query (Black Prairie, The Decemberists; musician), and Kevin Avery (the comedian who wrote the John Oliver spot that helped generate such an avalanche of comments it broke the FCC’s website).

- Religious post: Church Presses Charges Against Homeless Cookie Thief "But, of course, while it’s easy to denounce this church for their so obviously un-Christlike actions, the reality is most of us aren't much better when it comes to loving and serving the least of these in our community. We may not be pressing charges against homeless people for eating cookies in our church kitchen, but that’s because most of us done such a good job keeping the needy at arms reach that they don’t even bother showing up to ask for help in the first place."
