Drum roll for June’s theme…REVOLUTION! The speakers are out of this world, so keep your eye on our website to save the date for the talk in your city! http://creativemornings.com/themes/revolution
Revolutions aren’t strangers to the creative community. We’re a community that breaks rules, challenges stereotypes, and makes change. We care deeply about the cities we live in and fight passionately for our convictions. This month, hosts and speakers in 115 cities will explore this theme of Revolution.
Great news! The net neutrality rules you all fought so hard for (and won!) have gone into effect. The FCC’s Open Internet is Order is officially official.
Pop open a bottle of whatever you celebrate with, but don’t get toooo comfortable yet. In a bogus and sneaky move, some members of Congress are using a funding maneuver to prohibit the FCC from implementing its own net neutrality rules.
If you care about internet freedom and you have a spare minute, you can help make sure Congress doesn’t screw up this victory. Call up one of these key members of the House Appropriations Committee and and ask them to take out the anti–net neutrality language from the House Appropriations bill for fiscal year 2016, specifically sections 628, 629, and 630:
- Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL, who introduced the bill)
- Rep. Henry Cuellar (R-TX, who’s advocating for the interests of the carriers)
- Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY, who’s currently the best champion of changes to the bill that will preserve net neutrality)
More details: This is a general appropriations bill that funds independent agencies, including the FCC, through the coming year. Legislators on the Appropriations subcommittee are trying to thwart net neutrality by attaching specifically targeted riders to the bill. Considering that the FCC’s monumental ruling was the culmination of a remarkably open and participatory debate, these background moves are a particularly cynical circumvention of the democratic process and the will of the people.
It’s nasty business, and President Obama won’t be able to do anything about it except by vetoing the entire bill. Let’s not put him in this pickle. Call up and demand the fair and open internet you fought for (and, again, won!).
Talk about a Revolution (plug for this month’s CreativeMornings theme)!

Carla Diana, designer-artist exploring the impact of future technologies (New York City)
Nerea Iriepa, student of robotics and organizer of RoboCupJunior 2015 (Malmo)
Alex Webb, Assistant Professor of Emergent Technology at the School of Architecture and Planning, University of New Mexico (Albuquerque)
