CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality f

collegehumor:

image

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

I hear Dwayne 'Rock' Johnson is playing Black Adam in the Captain Marvel movie, who do you want to see play Carol Danvers opposite him?

I was hoping that he’d play Carol Danvers, actually.

The Sort-Of Official Carol Corps ATL DragonCon 2014 Meetup Recap!

carolcorpsatl:

Hi all, your friendly neighborhood co-organizer Ally here. Now that I’ve somewhat recovered from DragonCon, I want to talk about our rockin’ awesome meetup!

When Torrey and I came up with the idea to organize a Carol Corps meetup at DragonCon, I wasn’t expecting what it turned out to be. DragonCon announced Kelly Sue as a guest, and I reached out to the Comic Books Track about organizing the meetup and inviting her. They immediately offered to make it part of official programming, which meant convention space and promotion. I was floored. So thank you Kyle and Zano for that! This could not have happened on the scale it did without y’all.

As Torrey and I watched everyone file into the room, before Kelly Sue arrived, we knew we’d pulled it off. Wall-to-wall smiling faces and happy discussions all around. I can’t begin to tell y’all how excited Torrey and I were, even if we were also a little bit nervous because the room filled well over capacity. Then Kelly Sue arrived and the entire place went bonkers.

This was my first time meeting Kelly Sue in person. She is warm, kind, and funny and also no-nonsense. I admire her work ethic and her ability to write stories that fill up my heart as well as her unapologetic feminism. She is the kind of feminist I aspire to be: outspoken and fiercely supportive of other women. I could’ve listened to her talk forever.

The meetup felt more like a long, satisfying conversation with 100+ of our closest friends as Kelly Sue took questions from the audience, called Carol cosplayers up front to pose for pictures, and handed out goodies. The room was full of laughter and love; I felt like I had come home.

This was actually my very first Carol Corps meetup, and it was so exciting to meet all of you in person. Thank you to everyone who came up to me to say you had a wonderful time. It means a lot that we were able to do this for you.

The thing is, I love making fandom happen. I get this huge kick out of organizing fandom events, which is why I volunteer for things like DragonCon and Shatterdome Atlanta, and why I jumped at the chance to help organize this Carol Corps meetup. Pardon me while I get a little over-the-top but it’s sacred to me, because these fandoms are family. I love knowing that I can help bring y’all together. I love being part of this found family.

The meetup ran over time, and I think whoever was in charge of these things just started loading in the next panel while we were still clearing the room. Then we all poured out into the hallway for more chatting and pictures. It was magical.

If you couldn’t get into the meetup, I am SO SORRY. We had limited space to work with, and let as many people in as we could without flagrantly violating fire safety codes. If this happens again — hopefully it will! — we will do our best to ensure there is more space to accommodate everyone. Torrey handmade fabric bookmarks for the meetup, and will post later about how to get one if you weren’t able to get in.

Again, THANK YOU Carol Corps Atlanta for making this DragonCon the best one I’ve had in years. I hope to see all of you at other conventions and around Atlanta during the year.

Thank you Ally and Torrey, for the AMAZING event you put together and allowed me to be a part of.  It was a thrill!

The Internet Slowdown is coming, and it’s going to be huge.

fight4future:

Hey there,

Exciting news! The Internet Slowdown net neutrality protest planned for September 10th is really taking off. This morning, a dozen of the world’s largest websites announced that they’re joining in a big way. Sites you know and love like Etsy, Kickstarter, Wordpress, Vimeo, Mozilla, Namecheap, Foursquare, imgur, and reddit.

Will you join too?

Everyone has a role in the Internet Slowdown. Click here to find out what YOU can do.

Oh, but that’s not all that happened this morning. Just a few hours ago I got a phone call from a number in Washington, DC. The person on the other end tried to ask some questions without identifying themselves, but when I asked outright they told me they were from NCTA — yep, as in the National Cable Television Association, aka Comcast’s lobbying army.

 They wanted to know when we would be announcing the names of the companies participating in the September 10th net neutrality protest. I suggested they take a look at the front page of The Guardian, or at this op-ed by the CEO of Etsy in Wired, and mentioned they may want to check out this TIME Magazine article. Then I hung up.

After the call, I couldn’t stop smiling. I’ve been organizing for many years and one thing I’ve learned is that powerful enemies only start contacting you when they’re scared. If they don’t think you’re being effective, they ignore you.

Friends, we are giving some of the most powerful interests in the world a run for their money. And they have tons of money. We’ve got Comcast & company shaken up and scared. This is our chance to to drive the message home and win this once and for all.

All the tools you need for the battle are here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

If you’ve got a website, blog, or Tumblr run the “slowdown” widget on your site to symbolically show your users a “loading” message and help people understand what the Web could be like without net neutrality. If you don’t have a site, change your profile pic to the “loading” symbol, so that the entire Internet is alive with protest on September 10th, and forward this email to everyone you know to spread the word.

The truth is, unlike Comcast and their cronies, we have nothing to hide. A report from the Sunlight Foundation yesterday showed that 99% of comments the FCC has received are in support of net neutrality. The public agrees, and hell hath no fury like the Internet scorned. As I write this email, I’m feeling more hopeful about our chances of victory in the battle for net neutrality than I have since we started this fight.

Last chance. We need you for the Internet Slowdown on September 10th. Are you in?

We can win this, and when we do, it’s a victory we can put in the history books.

For the Internet,
-Evan Greer at Fight for the Future

P.S. Our friends at Namecheap are really throwing down in the fight for net neutrality. Check out the awesome video they just put up at NetNeutrality.com (nice URL right?), wait til you get to the part where people are riding on toilets chasing wall street bankers up a bike ramp.

P.P.S. There’s still time to get your very own #TeamInternet t-shirt or hoodie. Go here and reserve yours before they’re gone! http://teespring.com/stores/team-internet

Captain Marvel, a $5 commission is I think done. I really like how this one turned out. Sometimes I know what I’m doing, and other times I get lucky, and I think this counts as both!

I had a hard time thinking up a cool pose for Carol, but ultimately I think this is pretty fitting. Rather than draw her posing tough or flying intensely, this sort of quiet moment at dawn…I just imagine after her coffee is ready, she shoots straight up into the clouds to enjoy the sunrise. I’m probably a dork, but I think someone who flies would have to love the sun on their skin in the morning.

Materials wise, this is a very limited palette: Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Sophie (I love this yellow), Payne’s Gray, and French Ultramarine. I used a little Cerulean blue for the sky just to make it a little dull as it comes up the sun, but most of the colors are the Crimson, Yellow, and Ultramarine. As usual, painted on Stillman and Birn paper, this time the smooth Zeta paper.

If the person who commissioned me found me on tumblr, I hope you like this! If not, I can make edits. Hope ya’ll like it!
