CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

collegehumor:

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.

Django Unchained Prints! Get them here!

Get them where?

Good question! Right here.

Thanks for the response! I’d already found it and bid.

Cause they’re awesome. And money going to the CBLDF is always a good thing.

That Bat Guy I draw so rarely. A quick sketch from this morning.

Wait. So, he draws a near perfect Superman, and now he has the AUDACITY to draw a Batman that captures so much of that Mazzuchelli timelessness. How dare you Evan Shaner. You need to draw World’s Finest. High-res

I made this comic for Light Grey Art Lab’s Stacks exhibition. It’s a cool concept where each artist makes a zine centered on a given year from the past 30 years. All together its like a weird rambling timeline.

I chose 1999 mostly because I really wanted to make this comic for a long time. This story is based on actual events from when I was 14, but I just changed the names and faces a little bit. 

I’ll post the rest of the story tomorrow!

You can buy a copy here.

I definitely support comics being set in Louisiana.

And this one just happens to be pretty good, too.
