Internet & Networking According to Wired, "The Senate is likely to vote within days on a measure that would undo net-neutrality rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission in 2010, even though they've yet to go into effect... The House passed a similar measure, but Obama has threatened to veto it. It was not immediately clear whether the Senate has the necessary votes for passage." If you care about net neutrality, now is a good time to head on over to Save The Internet and get involved in this issue.

I am all for net neutrality, however (and in life there is always a however) I don't trust our legislators to do it right. Here is why:

1) They are mostly ignorant of technology.
2) They are often more beholden to special interests and lobbyists than constituents.
3) They are not very good at understanding unintended consequences.

So, although I think we need neutrality, I don't think legislation will ever get us there.
