Save the Internet, Part Deux

AlterNet: Markey introduces Net Neutrality Act

Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) threw down the gauntlet just moments ago, introducing the Network Neutrality Act of 2006 [full text HERE], which "[offers a] choice between favoring the broadband designs of a small handful of very large companies, and safeguarding the dreams of thousands of inventors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. This legislation is designed to save the Internet and thwart those who seek to fundamentally and detrimentally alter the Internet as we know it."


Here's the updated action list, from Matt Stoller via pachacutec:

1. SIGN a Net Neutrality petition to Congress.

2. CALL Congress now. Especially, tell your rrepresentatives in the House to support Markey’s Net Neutrality Act of 2006, but educate your senators on this issue too, as the fight will soon move there.

3. WRITE A LETTER to Congress.

4. MYSPACE: Add "Save the Internet" as a friend.

5. Check out the BLOG RESOURCES about this issue, including "Save the Internet" logo.

6. VISIT the SavetheInternet coalition Web site for more information.

Former Clinton Press Secretary Mike McCurry is out there pimping for Big Telecomm for a big fee (and whining about how he's being treated by the little people on Huffington Post).

What's it with all those former Clinton staffers turning to the dark side? Like Donna Shalala living in a 9000 foot square mansion in Florida and screwing the janitors at the University of Miami who just want to make a living wage (right now they make $7.53 an hour. She couldn't feed her little show dogs on that.)? Did they all lose their souls in the swamps of Washington, DC?
