Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality means that Internet service providers may not discriminate between different kinds of content and applications online. It guarantees a level playing field for all Web sites and Internet technologies. This is becoming an issue for community media centers as we increasingly host large amounts of content on line. Preserving Net Neutrality also dovetails with DMA's work to advocate for open media resources for all.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stared at the large, blank wall on the east side of the Davis Media Access (DMA) building on Fifth Street. Beige, bland and empty except for a sign that still needs to be updated (note: it's been updated, Oct. 15--check it out!), I’ve long thought the wall is just crying out for a mural. But it’s one of those projects we have perpetually put off in the face of more pressing needs at this community media center.

Update from Our Muralist

March 20, 2009 Jesus Kobe continues to paint murals and advocate for the Oaxacan people. A new website, http://colectivotk.com, highlights the work of Jesus and compadres as they continue to bring attention to events in this region of Southern Mexico. There's a link to the DMA mural in the archives section at this site. Kate writes occasionally to keep us apprised of unfolding events.
