A Closed Internet

Hello, readers!

I love the freedom I have on the web. We all do. Oh, excuse me, I should say had.

Recently in the U.S., we’ve lost net neutrality. I was at work when I saw the news alert. I’m enraged and devastated that the Internet is going to be commercialized like television. It’s disgusted and nauseating. I was fearful that this would happen. Now, I worry that the rights as we know them for the Internet won’t be restored.

Here’s a good video about net neutrality from the YouTube show “Extra Credits.” This is from 2014. Sadly, it’s relevant.

But, as my sister told me, “This too shall pass.” I can only hope.

Yours in Internet freedom,

Meghan
