Search the Internet History of Your Least Favorite Politician

Last Tuesday Congress repealed FCC Internet privacy protections. Now an Internet Service Provider (ISP) may sell your private information. Well, Congress doesn’t live in a vacuum, and there’s been a bit of resistance.

The very next day, Minnesota began passing state Internet privacy rules. While Minnesotan’s rapid action to restore Internet privacy is a loud, blasting statement to Congress, it may yet fall on deaf ears. Republican lawmakers live too high up, in insular ivory towers, to hear the voice of the people who live far down below.

However, privacy activist and Net Neutrality advocate Adam McElhaney understands this kind of hearing disability, and he thinks he knows how to get the attention of legislators.

Since everyone’s Internet search history is now for sale, McElhaney plans to

“Purchase the Internet histories of all legislators,
congressmen, executives, and their families and
make them easily searchable at
SearchInternetHistory.com.”

 

What with national marketing agencies and corporate human resource departments vying for your personal information, you know the prices will be jacked up. McElhaney needs a little dough to get started, in case you want to donate a buck to the cause of Internet Privacy, and join this sublime form of creative resistance. <3

    I do daily penance for my hope, even remote, of paul ryan’s… um… ability to be saved. It was funny to see him say, the same things I saw him say in 2008, again, via TDS, in regards to current policy. *sigh* I guess, we’re all fooled the first time a parrot speaks… we think they are sentient beings…

    …and then, later, we realize, they are whistling Dixie, because that’s what they were ‘taught’ to do…

    *ahem*

      Yes, Ryan is a very cooperative boy… to the political ideology of Big Money.
