#171 - Net Effect New episodes Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Friday, November 3, 2006
TODAY'S NEWS: I don't intend to make this comic merely a platform for socio-political commentary, but it's hard to be a Progressive Thinker in today's environment of Corporate Greed. Net Neutrality is an important issue, but many Internet users aren't aware of the efforts by large corporations to change the rules so they have more influence over what you can access. Not surprisingly, they'd also make more money.
For example, without Net Neutrality, a service provider could decide that you couldn't see this comic page, unless someone paid a surcharge. You already pay for Internet access, and I pay for website storage space and bandwidth. They'd be charging extra, but not adding any value. How would you feel about that?
