I am now officially a fan of the Federal Communications Commission. No, really, I just signed up on their Facebook fan page. Just as Obama launched Recovery.gov to monitor how tax dollars are spent on his stimulus package, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski launches OpenInternet.gov to rally support for Net neutrality.
This is sheer genius. After all, who would speak out for an open Internet more vocally than Internet users themselves? Complaints about throttling ISPs will become that much louder when they’re in the comments section of a government site.
