Talking about collective action you can organize over the web! Pandora asked a few weeks ago help from their listeners to help them in their ability to provide their social recommendation music radio service in the future:
More than 200,000 Pandora listeners contacted their congressional representatives! The entire fax infrastructure on Capitol Hill ground to a halt. We had to deliver faxes manually – literally boxes full of them were delivered to every office in the Capitol building. The result has been swift and dramatic: more than a million people have already joined the cause! There is now a bill just being introduced called the “Internet Radio Equality Act, H.R. 2060″ to fix the problem and save Internet radio -and Pandora- from obliteration.
Keep the net neutral, have the ability for free speech. Internet is not a series of tubes, it’s a new world. Limiting distribution of content based on content (be it by legislation or by enforcing through ISPs) is like limiting your ability to breathe in the physical world. Rock on. Join the cause.
