Internet Neutrality -- even this is threatened

I cancelled my mobile telephone contract with cingular/formerly AT&T. I don't know that my new one will be any better, but I'm trying to avoid paying money into these corporations that want to make the Internet their highway to control (with government permission) of ideas and communities by a few short-sighted money-makers.

This video gets to the point fast, and I urge you to sign on to support the coalition for net neutrality

Legislation being worked on now would give corporations legal rights to control which sites you can or cannot see.
Thanks to Rodrigo Garcia of the Archdiocese of Santiago and the Linux Community, Chile, for again reminding me of this. He and others outside the US find this development frightening becuase it portends international initiatives that the US will undertake should the corporations win this one in the US.
