Net Neutrality

Webcomic Storyline: 

Old Skool Webcomic, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

A: Today we want to illustrate the importance of Net Neutrality.

B: That's right. And we're going to do it through roleplay!

A: I'm going to play the part of a large telecommunications firm opposed to Net Neutrality.

B: And I'm going to play the part of a small, scrappy website that depends on a freely accessible internet to function.

A: OK, since I am larger and have the money and resources to lobby Congress and the FCC to sway them to my point of view, I get to argue first.

B: All right.

(A begins to grow in size.)

B: Um...

(A continues to grow, pushing B off the panel.)

B: Hey.

(A grows until B is completely removed from the panel.)

A: Net Neutrality is bad.

Yeah, that's about how it happens. Right on the money!

I said:

Then you said:!/ubersoft/status/18347130561241088

...which I missed because I wasn't paying attention.

No, I understood that you were promoting Net Neutrality; I was just re-voicing what 'A' said. Sort of a quote out of context. Probably served to draw more attention to the topic than if I had tweeted "@Ubersoft favours Net Neutrality".

BTW, I tried to get a biography of 'A' from but there's nothing but blank there.

Thanx for all the comix over the years. I do find OSW a favourite.


Hi Bob!

Sorry Mollom ate your post. I've fixed it. I'll try to figure out what's up with the cast page...
