Wow: Nastygram from the Brown campaign
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
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.

I take it Mr. Reed’s outrage is triggered by the Senate’s regulations of what constitutes being a “lobbyist” for purposes of the Senate rules. I hadn’t received the memo…

Countable – Government Made Easy
I found this great little iPhone app today.

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!
I should start jumping out of planes again.
