Future Chat: Tech 12 – Net Neutrality

This week’s Future Tech Chat will feature +Mike Attrell and I (+Rob Attrell), along with special guest and one of the biggest proponents of Net Neutrality, +Keegan on.

We’ll be discussing Net Neutrality this week, an issue that is hugely important for our time, with Sen. Al Franken equating it to free speech in the constitution in the US. In case you’re not up to speed on what that could mean for you, check out these videos:

There’s a ton to know about net neutrality, but this (and watching this episode of +Future Tech Chat), is a good start!

And some great news this week, this webcast is officially also a podcast! You can find the podcast version of the show on iTunes! (what!?) so if you find you don’t have time to watch the video, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Obviously, the format of the show will stay visual since it’s a live webcast, but we will try to be mindful of the fact that some people won’t be able to see what’s going on, and there will always be a link to the video in the podcast description.

I hope you’ll tune in live at 12:30 PM EDT on Saturday, May 17th for the episode, and you’ll be able to watch it in full below live or after it’s aired.

As always, you can ask us any questions you might have on the Q&A in the event page (https://plus.google.com/events/c97l6m7ofqsu21rqhuipfj4qbgk), or by email at futuretechchat@gmail.com. So far we have answered or addressed every question submitted, and you can expect that trend to continue!

We look forward to seeing you there live!
