MoveOn.org is running a campaign to tell Congress to preserve Net
Neutrality. Here's a link to a third-party article on the issue
(http://tiny.mitre.org/295). If you agree it's important to support
this campaign, you can sign the petition at

Just curious what's everyone's take on a Bill in congress which will
cause
Net Neutrality to be limited on a pay to play basis by Internet
Providers.

Here's a humorous site detailing the issues quite well -

-net-neutrality

I believe this is something that could adversely affect everyone on
this
lists' lively hood.

My views on government are not so relevant, having said that I really
have
next to "0" faith in government, and would not be surprised to see
an(other)
unbelievable blunder passed, especially by this administration.

What is your take on this and what are we doing about this?

O' come now,

The issue is lost, mainly because many in support of Net Neutrality chose the wrong methods to fight the fight. Does anyone really think that blogs, email, and discusion groups such as this one are going to influence congress while the CEOs of Verizon and AT&T visit the charimen of the committees every month? Silicon Valley, where are you? It's wake up time. Who do you think Congress is going to listen to? Spamers? How much have you contributed lately?
