Net Neutrality Update

It will be interesting to see how the FCC deals with net neutrality, given that over 99% of the comments sent in during the open comment period - which, if you'll remember, was extended because so many people had something to say - are pro-net neutrality! Less than 1% of the comments opposed net neutrality; I hope the FCC realizes that most of us want desperately to keep it safe!

And not just users like you and me; not just librarians and teachers, either. Major tech companies - including Mozilla, Reddit, and KickStarter - are planning a "'go slow' day" to protest efforts to create "fast lanes" which actually mean slowing down the Internet for those who can't or aren't willing to pay extra for the access we now enjoy equally.
