The Internet is still in it's infancy, it's entirely likely that the applications and protocols that the majority of us will find most valuable ten years from now have not even been thought of yet. It's thus very important to make the internet a level playing field, to allow it to continue to be a fertile field for growing new ideas, and new prosperity.

To do this, we should encourage Internet access for all Americans. One very low cost way is to help encourage a culture that shares this resource. The recent FCC rulings concerning "White Space" or unused radio channels are a great step forward. We should also encourage the FCC and others to allow communities that wish to build their own Internet infrastructure, instead of forcing them to wait for one of the incumbent monopoly providers to decide it's worthwhile.

The Internet was meant to be shared, anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
