Internet for Hire?

If I'm understanding the situation correctly, there's a possibility that corporations will be able to pay to have some sort of control over how we find sites on the Internet. I'm not sure I understand how it's possible, but it sounds bad. Go here to get the scoop and sign the petititon. Moveon.org is in line with my political views so I tend to trust them.

Sometimes I comment on my own blog. I want to keep the Internet for Hire thing at the top. In related news, when I went to the MoveOn site, I saw that Alyssa Milano had blogged about saving the Internet, so OF COURSE I went to her site. I didn't know this was the last season of Charmed!! I'm way behind on DVDs. I own season 1 and haven't even finished yet...
Is she a flake or is the person blogging for her a flake? Maybe she's asking the same about me : )

Another good site is www.savetheinternet.com. That's pretty much one-stop shopping for info about the issue.

I'm sure I saw it, but at the time (and now) the term 'net neutrality' means nothing to me. The move on people sent me several e-mails that allowed me to cobble together some sense of what's going on (but still not much)

Apparently I'm too thick to grasp the significance
