Subject: [RITlug] Net Neutrality: The Importance of Open Internet
Date: Thu, 15 Feb 2018 04:07:19 +0000
This week we will be having a special guest. RITlug alum Nate Levesque
(thenaterhood) will be giving a talk on Net Neutrality. A short summary
is below. Telecoms are getting bigger and Internet service isn’t as
competitive as it used to be. Most big ISPs don’t care about keeping the
Internet open. Unless we fight for the Internet by making noise and
contributing to projects that support net neutrality, we risk losing a
major platform for free speech and open source. The future of the
Internet depends on us.
