As expected, the Federal Communications Commission voted to eliminate net neutrality by a partisan line 3-2 vote. The FCC live streamed the hearing and if you didn’t get an opportunity to listen, commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel (who voted against the measure to protect net neutrality) made certain to mention how much nonprofits and individual creators stand to suffer.
On another hopeful note, a series of state attorney generals, such as New York’s Eric Schneiderman, are filing lawsuits to stop the FCC’s decision (details).
And while hoping for the best and contributing to those efforts is something everyone should do, preparing for the worst is the smart move in case those efforts are unsuccessful.
To that end, I published the latest installment in the series of articles about what you can do for your organization to help marginalize the impact of post-net neutrality slowdowns. It provides step-by-step instructions that include copy/paste SQL query code and detailed screencaps.
Even if working on a database is new to you, the instructions are user-friendly enough to be comfortable implementing a number of tasks from this list.
