                    When we use a computer at a friends house, we don't have to ask "Do you get Facebook here?" or "Do you have YouTube on your connection?" we just ask "Can I connect to the internet?" - we know those sites are going to be there, they are part of the Internet! That's the way it is NOW. But it might not be for long unless we are proactive in protecting that openness. The major telecommunications companies are exploring the idea of switching to a "tiered" service plan, similar to what your cable television provider might offer. Only instead of having to pay for specific channels, you'd be required to pay for access to specific sites like Google, YouTube or Facebook. It's not hard to imagine how a tiered "Internet" would impact our society. Want to research a personal health matter at your local libraries public computer lab? Sorry - they don't subscribe to the WebMD package. Uploading some photos to promote your community garden? Out of the question - unless you want to pay for the "content creators" package. Trying to learn more about where a political candidate stands on an issue? Maybe next month, your allotted video views have been used up. There is a movement building to stop these tiered service plans, and to ensure that the Internet is as open ten years from now, as it was ten years ago. This movement is called Net Neutrality. Visit www.savetheinternet.com to learn more about what you can do to protect the future of the Internet.
