Gratitude and Net Neutrality

How appropriate for One Web Day! Gratitude for the internet we have and concern for the freedom we enjoy.

Lucy posted a terrific post on why net neutrality matters, with help from one of my favorite mags (which is so good at visuals) GOOD. Copied below. Keep an eye on Savetheinternet for ways to help!

And yes, foundations and philanthropists better care or their other causes will suffer dramatically! We all need to care or we will give up our freedom and ability to make social change and profit from good capitalism!

Why foundations should care about an open internet

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I’ve easily posted 1000 words about internet access, the media, and patents as philanthropic issues. So here is the photo that better states the case:

If those in philanthropy care about job creation, education, health, children’s rights, elderly involvement, civic engagement, environmental awareness, sustainable communities, economic development, or anything else that involves issues of equity and access to information then “Net Neutrality” matters. Take action here.

Shout out to GOOD Magazine for the photo.
