R.E.M., The Roots, and a Bunch of Waffles Tell Feds To Preserve Net Neutrality

A group of musicians that includes R.E.M., Jackson Browne, The Roots, Moby, and OK Go has sent a letter to the FCC urging legal protection for net neutrality, the principle (and current reality) that all information can travel equally quickly on the Internet.

The FCC isn't actually discussing net neutrality at the meeting going on right now in Washington, but that of course didn't stop the musicians from sending a very sincere-sounding plea to commission Chairman Juilius Genachowski. It also didn't stop another group from serving waffles in an effort to protect net neutrality. Yum.
