Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Countable – Government Made Easy

I found this great little iPhone app today. It does a good job of explaining legislation that is currently being voted on, and allows you to contact your representatives and voice your opinion in one simple step. It also shows you how your representatives voted on past issues so you can judge them by their actions, not just their words. Highly recommended!
