Net Neutrality: The Senate Vote Is Probably Tuesday

Kinda important to mention that. Like it says below, contact your Senators.

One additional thought: I started off in life as a conservative, and part (though hardly all) of the reason I'm not one anymore is that conservatism itself has changed. I'm very much an 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' guy, and even if it IS broke, fercryinoutloud, don't monkey around with things unless you really can make them better.

The Net has been neutral. It ain't broke. Hell, if there's any part of our society that's thriving, growing by leaps and bounds, producing more cool innovations in a day than you could try out in a year, it's the Web.

Getting rid of Net Neutrality is fixing what ain't broke. The risk is in changing the system, and the upside of that change is vague at best. Why should we take a chance of screwing up the amazingness of the Web, just on the off-chance that the telcos can pipe a few extra goodies to us?

It isn't worth the risk. Not in a million years.
