What is Net Neutrality? and Why Would Or Should We Care?

Net Neutrality is the guiding principle that preserves the free and open Internet.

Net Neutrality means that Internet service providers may not discriminate between different kinds of content and applications online. It guarantees a level playing field for all Web sites and Internet technologies.

Net Neutrality is the reason the Internet has driven economic innovation, democratic participation and free speech online. It protects the consumer’s right to use any equipment, content, application or service without interference from the network provider. With Net Neutrality, the network’s only job is to move data — not to choose which data to privilege with higher quality service.  Read more

Visiting with our two guests today on the CHWR show, we found out that teens and young adults know what this (Net Neutrality) is, and just how important it really is to all of US!!  A Look At Growing Up Digital from the Perspective of 20 Somethings!

Listen to Dave and Bill and both their guests as they talk about growing up in the “Digital Age”

Michael Yingling, is a 24-year-old Software Engineer and IT Consultant who grew up around computers. Unlike many IT professionals, however, he has an outgoing personality which is one of his greatest assets…

Because of his relatively young age he grew up as AOL was becoming popular. Today he is a close follower of the emerging mobile markets and the technology that youths today use – from Facebook to texting to Twitter – because he uses them all

He knows how these tools that are being utilized in colleges to both get more out of a class, or to get an “easy A” by copying term papers from Wikipedia.

Amara Vadee is a designer and marketer with one objective: to make the world a better place through meaningful design and honest communication.

She grew up under the influence of glossies like Esquire and Newsweek that initially cultivated her love of graphic design. Amara broke into the field of graphic design at the age of twelve when her teachers noticed her knack for visual communication. Through guidance and a lot of self-discipline, she taught herself a few graphic design basics, like Adobe PageMaker, HTML and CSS. In high school she developed her design skills and explored other artistic avenues, specifically photography and mixed media composition.

She attended a number of colleges and explored a variety of majors — military science, nursing, anthropology, and archaeology — before returning to her first love of design. In 2005 she received a scholarship to attend Art Center of College of Design. She graduated with her BA in Art: Graphic Design in 2007 after completing her course of study at CSU San Bernardino.

Thanks to our two 20 Somethings guests today… for teaching a couple of old timers some new cyber tricks :)
