- Attention Listener! The Following Is A Message From BITxBIT! - This week, Blake and Brian show what the world would be like without Net Neutrality. Under a constricted internet regulation, large internet service providers could force people like your weekly podcast providers to go dark. Without a free and open internet, ISPs can control what you share, access, watch, read, write, say and listen to by blocking connections, slowing speeds, charging astronomical prices all in the name of their interests and profits. You can speak out and make a difference. Educate yourself. Contact your government representative. Fight to save the internet. Keep shows like BITxBIT free and available. https://www.savetheinternet.com/net-neutrality http://act.freepress.net/sign/internet_NN_trump https://www.aclu.org/feature/what-net-neutrality That why we must protect net neutrality and if you want to help protect NN you can support groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the ACLU and Free Press who are fighting to keep Net Neutrality. https://www.eff.org/ https://www.aclu.org/ https://www.freepress.net/ https://www.fightforthefuture.org/ https://www.publicknowledge.org/ https://demandprogress.org/ also you can set them as your charity on https://smile.amazon.com/ also write to your House Representative and senators http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm?OrderBy=state and the FCC https://www.fcc.gov/about/contact You can now add a comment to the repeal here https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=17-108&sort=date_disseminated,DESC here is an easy URL you can use thanks to John Oliver www.gofccyourself.com you can also use this that help you contact your house and congressional reps.
