You say you want a revolution…

I just learned about a really important issue, and signed a petition about it. The federal government is on the verge of turning over a huge portion of our public airwaves to companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast–who will use them for private enrichment instead of the public good.

These newly available airwaves are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revolutionize Internet access — beaming high-speed signals to every park bench, coffee shop, workplace, and home in America. Phone and cable companies don’t want this competition to their Internet service–they’d rather purchase the airwaves at auction and sit on them.

You can sign the petition I signed here – urging the government to make sure the public airwaves are used for the public good:
