OK Cupid, PornHub, Imgur Join Amazon, Reddit in Internet-Wide Day of Action for Net Neutrality

Internet giants OK Cupid, PornHub, Imgur and Bittorrent have joined other high-traffic websites like Amazon, Etsy, Reddit, and Mozilla in pledging their support for an Internet-Wide Day of Action for Net Neutrality that will take place on July 12th. The intention of the day of action is to protest the destruction of net neutrality, a concept that aims to make sure that cable companies and internet providers can't control what consumers see and do online, and how fast they see and do them. 

For those who aren't up on their net neutrality news, Title II is the legal framework of how net neutrality functions, and the FCC has a plan to reverse it. What this would do to the everyday internet user is still up in the air, but you can be sure that it wouldn't necessarily a positive turn of events. 

And so protestors have taken to the internet to, well, protest. It's unclear exactly what will happen on July 12th, but a blackout or a boycott of sorts seems like the logical pathway, but I guess we will have to wait and see. In the meantime, the Day of Action requests anyone interested to sign up for the protest on their website (linked above.) The future of the internet could depend on it. 


On Flatbush Avenue, tucked amidst the nexus of four iconic Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and Prospect Heights), medical cannabis company Citiva opened up their newest location at the turn of the new year. Walking through the shiny glass door, you’re first struck by the sleek tidiness of the front lobby. Both the dispensary's resident pharmacist and receptionist greet visitors as they clear patients (as does any medical dispensary in the country) before allowing them through to the retail room.

Can we see some ID please?
