Coworker: Can we get a plate of nachos?
Me: And some beer too.
Server: We don’t serve beer.
Me: What! No beer at a taqueria?!

As a follow up to yesterdays post… the internet has radically changed the world. It has become a utility, just like water and electricity.
But thats not what they want us to believe… corporate greed. As of recent, the internet has gone from vibrant center of the new economy to burgeoning tool of economic control.
And the companies like AT&T and Comcast have spent the first two months of 2014 boldly announcing plans to close and control the internet through additional fees, pay-to-play schemes, and sheer brutal size — all while the legal rules designed to protect against these kinds of abuses were struck down in court.
If your interested to understand more and help unfuck the internet. Then I highly recommend reading Nilay Patel’s full article on the Verge, and then call the FCC to issue a complaint.
