Wednesday at the FCC head(ahem!)quarters. Tom Wheeler came down to tell us how much he supports net neutrality, and then screws us the following day.
I just got back from DC and I’m bushed. I’ll have some more coherent things to say after I’ve slept.
Apologies to all - the FCC live stream will begin @ 10:30
Now here’s something you don’t see every day! FCC chairman Tom Wheeler came down to our camp and had a real face to face talk with us!
Can you imagine if, say, Tim Geithner or Eric Holder had done this in Zuccotti Park? This, dear friends, is how democracy is supposed to work.
We had a good talk, and I really felt that he actually listened. I am cautiously optimistic.
One thing he said that I liked a lot: he’s going to put forth several proposals, he said, and would like to then hear back from us. I then said, would you be willing to put this to a vote of the internets users? He said yes.
Anybody got some good voting software? I think he may have actually meant it.
Some FCC folks stopped to chat with us. See, THIS is why you occupy - because you can actually get up close & personal with people.
I think we’re going to win this one.
