The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Saxon Invasion Mittens

These are a modified version of Jared Flood’s Druid Mittens.  I changed the wrist panel to a sideways-knit cable pattern (which is the “Saxon Braid” from Barbara Walker’s 3rd Treasury).

The yarn is Buffy Sock by Juno Fibre Arts, colourway “Graphite”.  It’s really lovely stuff and so nice to work with.  After some trial & error, I found that this yarn is well suited to cable stitches and not so much to knit/purl combos like the chevron stitch in the original pattern or traditional bobbles—hence, the cabled wrist panel and nupps.

I was very motivated to knit up this yarn because it was part of a very thoughtful and totally unlooked for gift from a lovely person.  It’s funny, but I felt like I had to do something really special with this yarn as a way of thanking my new friend for her kindness.  Normally when I acquire new yarn, I squirrel it away as if there is an impending global yarn shortage…especially luxury or indie-dyer yarn like this, which I never feel qualified to knit.  But I braved it, and now I have new mittens, just in time for the first snowfall of the season!

Just wanted to show all of you dear followers this, in case you haven’t seen it already!

Gorgeous!

Hullabaloo is a 2D hand-drawn animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo. In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

For more information about Hullabaloo, its creators, and how you can help bring this story to life, visit here! Their goal is to reach $80,000 by October 1st, 2014, so every donation helps and help spread the word!
