This reveals so much about how she feels about the current state of politics in South Africa provided she embodies full ANC identity in her. Such leadership.

I started working with the Internet when I was 13 because it was the most amazing publishing platform that had ever been created. It was an almost completely even playing field, where anyone could create and publish anything and succeed based on their merits
Sites like Geocities and WordPress spoke to this need for everyone to have a voice, and sites like Amazon and Facebook and Ebay and Google and Twitter demonstrated what was possible with a truly open platform. Netflix and Spotify and Skype are what happen when you continue to let the best ideas grow
It is absolutely ridiculous that we even need to have the net neutrality debate today, but here we are
The biggest telecom companies in the US not only want Internet access to not be considered a utility, they want to be the gatekeepers of what gets through to you, for a fee, of course. These are the same companies that are given right-of-way to lay down their lines in cities in exchange for also connecting unprofitable rural communities, and then immediately renege on those obligations. They have to be sued AND given more money to begrudgingly do so. They are the same companies that slow Netflix because it competes with their cable programs, and blocked FaceTime because it competed with the cell phone services they charged for
Make no mistake, telecoms spent millions lobbying against net neutrality because innovation in the Internet challenges the massively profitable services they currently have a stranglehold on. It would be easier for them not to filter the Internet, but they wouldn't get rich
Support net neutrality. Support organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation for an Internet that values freedom of speech, expression, and innovation. Contact your Congress representatives if they don't support net neutrality. Get "Ajit Pai is a giant tool" tattooed on your arm, and then get net neutrality written into law instead of having it be the purview of the FCC
