What net neutrality is really about

Boztopia

Technology is a tool, like anything else of human invention. It can be used for good or ill. The Internet can do--has done--tremendous good AND harm alike since its creation. But its potential is enormous, and has yet to be fully explored.

And all of that could be taken away if we lose the right to equal access to content.

If you believe that the Internet is yours--built with your tax dollars, sustained with your usage and your commitment, and capable of enabling you to transform your world--then you support Net Neutrality. This is what we have now, and we have to fight to keep it.

Yes, specifically DARPA, later joined by the National Science Foundation.
