Videos from the People

Don't Let Them Do It
Thanks to all who have created and submitted videos on behalf of SavetheInternet.com. Here are two that came over the transom on Friday. The first comes from SpeakEasy Productions via SavetheInternet partners MediaChannel. Check it out:


The second is a product of Amanda Congdon and her crew at RocketBoom. Amanda takes her Volvo for a spin to illustrate the threat posed by big firms that try to squash the little guy to "buy popularity" and monopolize access. Check it out:


The success of these videos (several were in YouTube's "Top Ten" with more than 200,000 downloads) is a testament to the free and open Internet, where the best ideas rise as a result of Net user choice and not by special selection of AT&T, Verizon and Bell South. Our friends at the telco front group "Hands off the Internet" have tried to buy that sort of popularity, with little success.

Watch these and other SavetheInternet videos and send us your own.

I enjoyed your post. Very informative albeit just a tad too long. The internet is not a bad thing. It's how it is used that makes the difference.
