Dozens jeer Google over Net neutralityGoogle's proposed Net neutrality guidelines have drawn a lot of fire, and Google employees got a feel for that opposition in person Friday.
-Net neutrality is under attack! What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -Y'all, net neutrality is under attack! What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -It's our open Internet that's under attack, y'all. What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -Companies like Google have actually benefited from a free and open Internet, and what we would expect from Google, what we wanna still see from Google is the upholding of their principle of Don't be Evil and then protecting the free and open Internet. -Why'd you come here today? -'Cause I support net neutrality. I feel like people need to have access to information. I feel like a tiered Internet system is not an equal way to have people accessing the information that should be ubiquitous. -300,000 signatures are going up to Google. Yeheey! -Yeheey! -Wooh! -[unk] -We were unable to deliver the 300,000 petitions from people all around the world who are concerned with what Google is doing. I talked with the---- one of the folks from the Public Policy Division of Google. We actually talked for a moment about the specific points of the proposal. The gentleman explained, "Hey, this is not---- we actually stand for an open Internet." I did challenge him when I said, "Well, but you're talking about creating a separate tier where those rules don't apply and you also talked about wireless being excluded from these rules and that's the essence of the problem." His answer was, "It's a proposal." He also told me that people can comment at googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com. I'm gonna say that again. It's googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com.
