If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue. 
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

E-MPROV.com - Council of Cyberfriends - 8/17/14

Safe in the confines of e-mprov, a group of incredibly geeky friends from Kansas City and Omaha team up to make improv even more dorky! By their powers combined they create scenes of such obscure pop culture references, you will be dazzled! They are… The Council of Cyber friends! 

Each week we explore a new topic from the world of movies, video games, comics, music and more. Topics range from the works of Philip K. Dick, the history of Mtv to the social change brought on by the 90’s X-Men cartoon. 

After we’ve filled up our brains we use that nerd knowledge to create improv sketches live, on air!

This week’s episode covers Batman Beyond. Check it out!
