Nevertheless, the alternative to Title II “Common Carrier” reclassification appears to be the destruction of the free market, the tyranny of monopoly pricing, Dantean customer service, and the gradual erosion of the World Wide Web as it comes fully under the control of the handful of corporations who have absolute power, under current regulations, to manipulate and suppress competition in more and more lucrative online marketplaces. Given the dynamic role the Web has to play in the commerce and discourse of the 21st century, this outcome is simply unacceptable, despite the inevitable costs of regulation. For these reasons, I support regulation of the Internet. If you’re a conservative defender of free markets and free peoples, then you should, too. — James J Heaney - Why Free Marketeers Want To Regulate the Internet

Incredible work, everyone. These numbers are huge.
How huge? With 10,000 sites participating in yesterday’s net neutrality effort, a total of 304,993 calls got made. You made nearly half of them. Bravo.
Also…which one of you made that 61 minute call? What’d you guys talk about?
The fight isn’t over, by the way. You can follow themediafix and demand-progress to keep up with everything that happens from now until the FCC votes.
Really want to know what that 61 minute call was all about…
Westboro Baptist Church showed up at Tumblr HQ today to help protest Net Neutrality
Thanks for your support guys, love the new signs!
See how you can help here
God hates a slow internet.
It is true that Teachout is not an experienced politician. The experienced politicians in New York State are hacks and criminals. That is the situation that the New York Times editorial board would like you to believe it cares about.
Yet the Times will not back the nomination of someone who comes from outside of the state’s culture of political corruption—not some reckless crank, a goldbug or anti-vaccinationist or animal-rights activist, but a degree-holding product of Yale and Duke, a former law clerk, a person who works full-time at understanding the process of political reform.
What other credentials would the Times ask a political reformer to have? What makes Teachout a quixotic candidate, while Cuomo—who would not be the governor of New York if his father had not been the governor of New York—gets taken seriously? — Tom Scocca, Gawker
