NET NEUTRALITY AND THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET

Nov 5, 2010


 What is Net Neutrality?




What are the potential impacts? What does the future Internet look like?


This series of interviews on Blackboard Jungle with ethnomusicologist Wayne Marshall, media studies professor Brian McCormick, Elizabeth Stark, Visiting Fellow at the Yale Informations Society Project, and Brooklyn Bodega editor Justin Hunte address issues about grassroots creativity, the future of news, the potential impact of regulation on music distribution, and an explanation of the public policy position put forth by Google & Verizon in August 2010.

Opinions range from gloomy to optimistic, but so far, aside from premium and tiered service plans already in place, the Net remains open. You can learn more about what's currently going on, and send a letter urging FCC Chairman Genachowski to restore the FCC’s authority to protect Net Neutrality by clicking here.
