There once was a little modem, who spent his days shuffling data in and out of the internets. Pushing and pulling, just as hard as his little ARM could. Against all odds.
Against the NSA with its submarines splitting undersea cables.
Against telecom monopolies, who oppress municipalities.
Against the shitty, dilapidated, and oversubscribed, underdeveloped infrastructure, lacking in pride, now ranked 31st in the world, oh my!
Against all odds, the little modem kept pulling. Bringing us Wikileaks and lolcats alike! Reddit, and Bitcoin, and Netflix and Snowden! Google and Facebook and PornTube and Amazon!
Delivering bits and bytes, against all odds. “I think I can! I think I can!” the modem did say. And for a moment, in a small way, it did.
Net Neutrality is not dead yet, but the internet that you know is under attack. This is like salting the earth, an attack against our future. We must protect our heritage. A lot of really smart, friendly people worked really hard to bring you The Internet. Nurture it, protect it, spread it.
