Just When You Think We’re Done With It… Net Neutrality Is Back

Net Neutrality is a big deal to Holly and I, Internet people that we are. I think that it’s like that you, dear readers, are in a similar boat. If so, you’ve probably seen that John Oliver did a new segment on the topic… but if you’re new to the topic, well, here’s a few posts we wrote about it before:

Yes, it was John Oliver’s first take on Net Neutrality that made us into solid watchers of his show: we’ve not missed an episode since (and watched the ones before… this was the 5th episode I want to say!).

And it’s back. Sadly, no dingos this time.

There’s a call to action at the end, and the news I’m seeing is that, of course, this seems to have wrecked the FCC website again. gofccyourself.com

I’m not sure that I have much more to add to the discussion right now… except I guess on the personal side. If you’ve been reading here a while, you know we made a switch in our ISP – because we actually have choice where we live (and it’s not between any of the big carriers, so, yay Alaska?). I appreciate that we are living in the exception, and not the rule, when it comes to Internet access in America. So just because this doesn’t immediately affect us doesn’t mean we don’t care a lot about it. Hopefully you care too!
