    Save the Internet!

    From AskANinja.com:

    "Hey, this is a slight break from the funny (or a longer break from the funny if you're one of the ones that hates question 19 ), but this is very important.

    There is something called Net Neutrality that being quietly discussed in Washington DC. There's a lot of confusion about it, but here's a great video that explains what's going on:

    <video>

    Yeah, okay the audio sorta sucked, and the graphics weren't that sexy, but give him a break, he's a Libertarian.

    If the ISPs get their way, people like the Ninja will no longer exist unless they have some sort of corporate seal of approval.

    That would suck.

    Please visit http://savetheinternet.com and see how you can get your voice heard on this important issue.

    I wasn't expecting this to be serious. But it was played on NPR's "All Things Considered".

    Still wasn't expecting a serious video on this.

    Code to the left of him, code to the right of him, code in front of him compil'd and thundered. Programm'd at with shot and $SHELL. Boldly he typed and well. Into the jaws of C. Into the mouth of PERL. Debug'd the 0x258.

    i didn't watch the video but i have heard some at length discussions about it in different podcasts. the net must remain neutral. this is a result of large US companies being greedy.
