Check out this #MemeThatMatters on the Oatmeal about Net Neutrality.

For Digital Citizenship and Free Press to work, we'll need to assure we have fair access: computers or mobile devices, web, internet & our myriad providers. This is a critical area where we'll need leadership to trend to assure we develop standards for technology governance.
By Net neutrality, I’m including absolutely everything (no loopholes, ya scallywags!) from device, OS, application, web, net, hops, ISPs as well as vetted content in my use of the term. Bottom line: we need fair access to accurate information. And we want that information organized in consistent messaging tiers (#BWrought2Tiers) so we can understand what's being discussed. That’s why the brand conversation became repeatedly important in the development of #AVA2016 and continues with #AVA2020. Just as the hospitality industry's professional  expertise can extend to a neighborhood block much in the same way a resort property is run, so can the resurrection of credible investigative journalism brands serve as a more meaningful filter to impact our BeliefDNA IDs. Content curation used to fall under (at least in our minds) a journalistic integrity standard so we understood that brand 60 Minutes or Washington Post meant something different than brand Allure or Glamour. Once our preferred content becomes the filter through which we “do governance,” those forms of consciousness have a whole new biz model.
