I live in Western Mass. I spend a lot of time online. I work a lot. (Photographer, retoucher, office manager.) Half-Jewish, raised by Buddhists. Probably older than you. I post news, politics, photography, art, books, pretty pictures, a little geeky pop culture and whatever's on my mind.

  • Mum: I think I want to watch that series you were watching a few weeks ago
  • Me: Which one?
  • Mum: It was something like 'orphan is the new black'
  • Me: That's two separate shows
  • Mum: No
  • there was a one with dark hair in glasses that you thought was hot
  • and i'm pretty sure she was a lesbian
  • because she was going out with that blonde lady
  • Me: That still could be either show
  • Mum: I think there were clones
  • Me: There we go.

The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Souls Tumbling In The Light

Every fall, birds head south and, around Sept. 11, New York sends two beams into the sky. When birds and lights collide, that could mean trouble — but New York is surprisingly gentle.

…Lives were lost on that bright dark day, 13 years ago. When we turn our giant candles to mark their passing, we don’t want to hurt anybody. Those little winged flashes of white tumbling through the night look too much like souls. They need their rest.
