Unfortunately, it’s becoming pretty clear that an environmental movement for the Internet is necessary. The Internet is under great pressure from all angles, including access providers who want to track what everyone is doing online and use it for their commercial advantage. We’re also suffering enormous digital divides and lower-income and rural communities don’t have adequate or consistent connectivity.
In 2008, OneWebDay is going to mobilize more people in more cities than every before and they are even going global.
