If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

SECOND KATHNIEL WEEK

Day 6  I can’t breathe:

How the original plot of SDTG ended:

A year after Athena Dizon passed away, Kenji received a video tape containing a recorded video taken by Athena herself, days before she died. In the video, Athena asks Kenji to be happy and that he should not worry about her. Athena breaks down in the later part of the video, expressing how much it saddens her to be away from him. But she promised Kenji that she will wait— she will wait no matter how long.

Not wanting to prolong Athena’s agony and longing, Kenji decides to commit suicide, in the hope that they will meet each other in the afterlife. Similarly, Kenji made a suicide note through a pre-recorded video explaining why he’s going to end his life. The story ends with Kenji uttering his last words, "Athena, I love you…this much." 

Kenji used to say that 'I can't breathe' is his way of saying 'I love you'. In a similar manner, he said how much he loves Athena as he took his last breath.
