The internet is giving a voice to those on the margins – losing net neutrality will take it away

The ConversationIt’s easy to argue that the internet as it exists now is not “neutral”, with some companies and websites creating tech empires and online monopolies. But the decision of US telecoms watchdog, the Federal Communications Commission, to remove regulations that overtly guarantee net neutrality – the basic principle that all information on the internet should be treated equally and should be equally accessible – will certainly not improve matters.

Trolls, Catfish, Cyberbullies--Oh My! How to Help Students Stay “Internet Kind”

Trolls, Catfish, Cyberbullies--Oh My! How to Help Students Stay “Internet Kind”
Donnie Piercey, EdSurge, 2017/07/06
According to Donnie Peircey "The trouble is many of our students operate under the assumption that a divide exists between the 'real world' and the 'digital world.'" It's like the people at the other end of the line aren't real, and so it's OK to behave badly toward them.

For example: using bots to remix and repost CC-licensed designs; harassment of marginalized groups; not respecting people’s desires and expectations about how content will be used; claiming CC0 public domain works as their own and monetizing them; and more.
