I recently experienced the power of wall-shaking, choreographed Taiko drumming that went straight to the heart.
That drumming is inspiring me as I help bring the push for real Net Neutrality straight to the Federal Communications Commission’s doorstep on May 15th.
If you think explaining tech policy is difficult, try putting it to music and lyrics. That’s exactly the challenge that faced musician and artist Jonathan Mann, who last week composed a song urging FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to ditch his plan for a payola Internet.
If you’re reading this, you probably agree with me that the Internet is an amazing thing. It's a crucial driver of free speech, innovation, education, economic growth, creativity and so much more. We wake up with it in the morning. We’re on it all day long. And it’s the last place we go before we finally say good night.
What if you had only three weeks before the Internet you know and love was about to disappear?
Would you spend your time binging on listicles or the final season of Breaking Bad? Or would you do something about it?
President Obama campaigned as a strong champion of the open Internet, saying he'd "take a back seat to no one" in safeguarding Net Neutrality.
Now the president is on his second FCC chairman, and neither has proven himself up to the task.
