If you're not worried about keeping the internet democratic - keeping it open to new voices, unpopular opinions, and innovation - you should be.
The "fast lane" idea that Big Business is pushing, the idea of charging tolls to get information to you (on your machine through services you pay for) means that Little Guys will be seated at the back of the info-bus. This blog, for instance, will be walking behind the bus and will take FOREVER to load. So will the plucky start-up company's website, your family photos, or the whistle-blower's blog. These modest sources seem just as important to me as getting reruns of Lost, but wealthy sites like Big Media's will load in a flash because they can afford to pay for special treatment.
Special treatment because of wealth is becoming THE problem in American democracy.
The internet is - today - one of the few places where people outside of wealth and power can have an equal voice. Let's keep it that way!
Today is your last chance to let the FCC know what you think of Big Biz buying the internet.
