Net Neutrality

The Death of The Internet?

Major telecommunications companies are spending millions lobbing the U.S. congress to make the Internet into a private network. In political lingo this means abandoning what is called “Net Neutrality”. In common sense terms it’s about the government withdrawing our right to Internet Freedom, it’s about the Death of The Internet. This V-Doc. (viral documentary) is about the current threat to Internet Freedom and how we can hold on to the open Internet and our right to communicate.


The only way the telecommunications companies will be successful is if we fail to raise awareness about this situation. If people find out that we are about to lose our Internet Freedom there is no way they will allow congress to do this.


This congressional decision will set a monumental precedent, and thus, impact not just U.S. citizens, but citizens all over world.

Internet Video

This week, I hack into the internet's video signal in an attempt to broadcast my rant about internet video. My connection is spotty, so I only seem to be able to break into the broadcast for short intervals. I tried to disguise my pirate signal by using internet video techniques, such as moving the camera for little or no reason and holding it in my unsteady hand.
