You might have noticed several food bloggers aren't writing about food today. We're writing about something else that's equally dear to us: the Internet.
In this vast arena of everything, we can find anything, something, or nothing at all. It's a lovely place. So what's the deal you ask? Well, today is Save the Internet Day. And today is a day of without food blogs.
Pim, of Chez Pim sent a post on Food Blog S'Cool last Friday noting a rather alarming law before Congress which would violate the principle of Network Neutrality -- call this the Internet's First Amendment. This new law would allow corporations and big telecommunications companies to decide what sort of web site service you get -- depending on how big your paycheck is; want to check out a commercial site where the owner paid them millions? Fast speed. Want to check out a little blog or some other grass roots website who couldn't afford to pay the new pricing scheme? -- well, remember 14.4K modems?
Pim says it much better and much more eloquently here.
Take a look. Chew. Sign.
