|A Day Without Food Blogs|
May 16th, 2006
I apologize for the disruption to my normal posting schedule. We hit the road and spent the Mother's Day weekend with my family. A great time was had by all but we didn't make it back until Monday evening, so no posts for you! And no food post again today either, as I must pause and direct your attention to the Day Without Food Blogs effort.
Participating food bloggers are deviating from their normal subjects today to publicize the threat to Net Neutrality posed by current lobbying efforts of the major telecommunications companies who are trying to convince Congress that they should be allowed to create a two-tiered internet. In effect the system they are proposing would allow companies with a lot of money and/or connections to provide a high-speed path to their site, while those without the special deals would be limited to a slower connection for their users or find their site blocked by certain carriers altogether.
See Accidental Hedonist or Chez Pim for more details, and please consider signing the petition to preserve net neutrality at Save The Internet.
Regular food blogging will resume tomorrow.
