Net Neutrality

Tim Berners Lee developed the technology that lets us view each other's web pages. The web grew exponentially from that humble foundation because of a simple premise that, until now, did not have a name. Now it has a name, "Net Neutrality", because myopic capitalists, specifically telecommunication companies, have realized that they're sitting on a gold mine built entirely of our purses. Yes, that means your purse. They want to hold communication for ransom using their government protected monopoly. Tim Berners Lee has a blog entry that you should read.
