Email today from +Mozilla Firefox​​​​​. Go the people!

Mark, Today will go down in history as the day we won real protections for net neutrality.After a long campaign, this morning the FCC voted for what we demanded, and what a few big cable companies did not want: strong, enforceable net neutrality rules based on classifying broadband as a Title II communications service.

Huge sums were spent lobbying Congress to try to limit what we can create and build and do online.We accomplished what seemed impossible: we stood together, took on the goliaths, and won.

 This was no small feat. It was the biggest show of public engagement the FCC had ever seen -- a mass movement of historic proportions. Millions of public comments flooded Washington on this issue. By banding together, we've helped to keep the Web open and accessible for everyone, equally.What's next? We've known all along that cable companies would turn to the courts if they lost with the FCC, and that's exactly what they're preparing to do, but they likely have a very difficult road ahead. The President himself spoke in favor of strong rules to protect net neutrality.

The FCC chairman, a former cable and wireless industry lobbyist, led the FCC to a vote on the rules we asked for. And anti-net neutrality bills in Congress have fizzled.We have built a powerful and unified grassroots movement, and we aren't going anywhere.We all know this won't be the last time we will need to join together to protect the Web from those that want to control it. With the net neutrality fight underway in the European Union, this victory in the U.S. will hopefully boost efforts there. Mozilla's policy experts are also keeping an eye on legislation about surveillance, privacy, and online safety and security just on the horizon.A handful of growing empires will no doubt try again to take more control of what is possible and what is imaginable on the Web. I hope we can call on you to stand with us when the time comes. Strength in numbers -- that's how we win.Today we celebrate -- click here to get a special photo to use for your Facebook profile to help commemorate this awesome victory

Thanks again for your work to make today's outcome possible and for all that you do to protect the open Web.Mark

Nice analysis +ralphyboy25​. I got the letter and posted it here but still have not really read much proper detail (hence no comment to add) so thanks for those words. Apart from the government control of the infrastructure I'd be keen to hear your take on what this is could mean for privacy. We would all appear at present, on the surface, to be able to trust some big corps more than we could trust the government.

+Mark Thomas  Good find - some of the lyrics are as debatable as the color of a dress.  : )

It's a cold world
When you keep it all to yourself
You can't hide on the inside
All the pain you've ever felt
Ransom my heart, but baby don't look back
'Cause we got nobody else

Start running with the Shadows of the Night.

I reckon ann wilson has it over pat vocally and in music talent but pat has much more appeal and more depth and breadth with her music range.

Many businesses just use spreadsheets and office docs to run their businesses and its often a bloody nightmare getting things to work together. Shortly we'll be helping any business anywhere implement one quality open source system to easily manage sizeable vendor customer, stock, inventory lists plus invoice, purchase orders prospects in a totally secure environment. (Either on their own server(s) or in a hosted environment that only they can access with code and data that is theirs to fully access). We'll charge a small one off fee to fully customise for their business. The idea is that they can easily manage their entire operation from anywhere.

The system we use has been around years and implemented across hundreds of thousands of businesses but its free, secure and fully customisable. The trick is in the customisation and making it right for a specific business.

It'll take a bit of discussion and attention to get things customised right but then you can forget all those systems that make you blow steam and don't work with other things and are inefficient, overdone, useless, complex and a waste of space. Ideal for small businesses who know a bit about systems and what they want out of it but not really all the detail and don't want the hassle.

Will do this for almost any small business in any country.

Let me know if computers and systems make no sense where you are.
