I just posted this over on SaveTheInternet.com, and thought I’d also share it here.
The Internet is Essential to the Global Community
Without the Internet, I would not know most of the people in my life whom I now consider irreplaceable. I met my housemates online, I met dear friends online, I reconnected with family I barely knew thanks to the Internet.
I have taken online psychology courses from a small (seven-member staff) company in Scotland, increasing my own skill base. I also make part of my income doing copy editing for that same company. A company that has had an enormous impact on my professional and personal development, as well as a positive impact on the lives of many others. A company I would never have found without Net Neutrality, as I doubt they would have been able to pay the “gatekeepers” to get their website seen.
