“You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.”

And for anyone interested, this is Jake's informative and promising answer to Bob's legitimate concerns.

I am linking a post I made in the science section of the forums as I suspect many people who read this section might not read that part of the forums.

It concerns the lack of feedback to us crunchers on this project. Are we doing anything useful? If I am going to invest time and money into a project I would like to know it is actively working toward some goal.

Net neutrality: Why Canadians should care about the internet changes in the U.S.

All is not lost in spite of the FCC rolling back net neutrality, and legal challenges are to be expected. US citizens (and canadian citizens, for the reasons mentioned in the aforementioned article) should not remain apathetic.

EFF: On December 14, the FCC voted 3-2 to roll back net neutrality and abdicate its responsibility to ensure a free and open Internet. That vote is not the end of the story, not by far. The new rule is being met with legal challenges from all sides, from public interest groups to state attorneys general to technology companies. Meanwhile, state governments have started introducing laws to protect net neutrality on a local level. Even as lawsuits begin, Congress can stop the FCC nightmare from going forward. Under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), Congress has a window of time to reverse an agency rule. This means that we, and you, must continue to monitor and pressure Congress to do so. So call Congress and urge them to use their power under the CRA to save the Open Internet Order. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/12/year-open-internet-came-under-siege-2017-year-review

What does Canada have to do with U.S. net neutrality? I am curious.
