Net Neutrality is Important

My friend Stephen Hackett wrote a great post about net neutrality a couple days ago. It’s worth a read, as well as a watch of the CGP Grey video embedded within.

This part by Stephen really hit home for me:

Here’s the thing: I’m not special for making my living online. The Internet has allowed countless businesses to blossom, creating an untold number of jobs. These companies provide goods and services for millions of people, and not just in America.

Allowing a handful of the most powerful companies on the planet to control how information flows on the Internet is reckless at best. Considering ISPs spent $42 million from January to July this year on lobbying, reckless may be the wrong word.

Evil may be a better choice.
