Yes, The Internet Is Rotting Your Brain

"Concentrated, linear thought doesn't come naturally to us, and the Web, with its countless spinning, dancing, blinking, multicolored and goodie-filled margins, tempts us away from it."

Net Neutrality a 'government take over'?

The corporatist's new strategy to fight against net neutrality is to claim that the government wants to "take over" and "regulate" the internet.  I read an article in the Washington Post last week that was making this corporatist argument and was appalled.  But I did not realize, after reading that article, that it was becoming a right wing talking point.  Just read this today:

And here's a bullsh*t commercial trying to convince us that net neutrality is a bad, evil, government take over.

Bloggers unite!

p.s. we all know what happens when corporations convince our government to "de-regulate".  
Just look at Wall Street, our economy, and the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.  
These are results of "de-regulation". AT&T etc. want to be able to charge websites extra
money to allow them to run at working speeds.

Gulf of Mexico. It's interesting. Exxon is still tainted in our minds from the Valdez spill in Alaska in '89.  
But from my reading, Exxon is now actually the safest oil company out there with fewer spills and accidents 
than any other.  That's because after the Valdez disaster they stopped scrimping on safety spending.  
BP on the other hand... BP spends the most money on advertising to convince us that they are 
actually "green" and environmentally friendly, yet they have one of the worst 
records for spills in the last decade or so. Why? Because they don't spend money on 
safety precautions. I'll see if I can find the article in which this was discussed.
