It’s Our Net — A New Site Announced by Six Apart
. . . . Scientific American published a pretty fair editorial on the topic, which reaches a clear conclusion:
A system for prioritizing data traffic might well be necessary someday, yet one might hope that it would be based on the needs of the transmissions rather than the deal making and caprices of the cable owners. Moreover, personal blogs and other Web pages are increasingly patchworks of media components from various sources. Tiered service would stultify that trend.
That seems like a reasonable analysis, so the natural next step for any Internet-related cause is to get a good website going to help with advocacy. Enter ItÃ¢â¬â¢s Our Net, supported by everyone from Adobe to Yahoo, and sponsored by Amazon, eBay, Google, InterActiveCorp, Microsoft, and Yahoo! . ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a simple, effective site combining the latest news, information about how the proposed change would affect the web, and tools to contact your elected officials. . . .
