This seems relevant to all my readers:
The US House is scheduled to vote on Resolution 86 (regarding the protection of online privacy and the sale of data by ISPs without a user's permission) tomorrow, Tuesday March 28. so if you're going to call or fax, there's not a lot of time. It's already passed in the Senate.

Here's a script (from the ACLU except that the House resolution number has been put in directly):

I’m calling to demand Congress protect my online privacy and keep FCC broadband rules intact. Do not pass House Resolution 86. I do not want internet service providers to sell my data without first getting my permission.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation aka EFF has more information on H.J. Res. 86.

I feel like I wrote my [community profile] worldbuildingex fic around the wrong worldbuilding aspect.

Social media - including blogs and journalling services like DW and LJ - are kind of creepy sometimes. I mean, where else could you have 100 or 800 or a 1000 people following you around, not saying anything to you...just watching...

I know, I've been online in journalling services like this for, oh, 16+ years, and I only just thought of it like that.
