Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
Tumblr as I’m sure you have noticed has a banner at the top, asking its user base to protect net neutrality. They have a pretty brilliant system in place, that will give you an opportunity to reach out to your representative in the Senate and also notes on what to say. If you have 3 minutes, join me and many others in protecting net neutrality.
I didn’t practice these past two days… but I did make a fun gif of me trying to learn to ride a bike! (Not pictured: Sheer terror and clumsiness)
Also: the file was built at 2000px and the gif is 500px (click through for the high-res still frame)
Some progress today. I’m not shuffling forward on the bike like an idiot anymore (picture a dog with worms… but on a bike), and can sort of “walk the bike” while seated. Toe-powered progress.
In related news: I have no idea how bike locks work. More specifically: I can UNLOCK it but have no idea how to secure it. I have to wait for my fiancé to come home and educate me.
