Setback for Net Freedom

Last night the House of Representatives voted down the Net Neutrality amendment to the Communications Opportunity, Promotion and Enhancement Act of 2006 (COPE). There's still a chance to put Net Neutrality back into the Senate version, but it will take continued pressure from the online community and freedom lovers everywhere.

See the statement from the coalition on last night's vote and check their web site for more information on what you can do.

On a more positive net note, have you noticed the new design for my blog? The basic 3-column template is by Thur Broeders, with some minor modifications of my own. This template is all CSS, whereas my old template was all HTML that I had cobbled together over the years and was beginning to fall apart.
