Vi Hart Explains & Defends Net Neutrality in a New Doodle-Filled Video

Vi Hart is back at it again. Hart has a knack for demystifying complex concepts with her visually-rich mathematical videos. She has previously tackled Stravinsky and Schoenberg’s 12-Tone Compositions and the Space-Time Continuum. This week, she’s taking on the concept of Net Neutrality. The FCC will soon consider whether it wants to end the era of net neutrality and the open web — something that could have far-reaching consequences for you. The web keeps getting more and more corporatized (even by companies that claim to support net neutrality). And by killing net neutrality, the FCC can officially ensure that big corporations run the show.

In the video above, Hart explains the concept of net neutrality and why it’s important to defend. On her blog, she also includes a lot of additional resources — including more videos that explain net neutrality, plus information on how you can tell your political representatives to keep the web open.

    Presenting one side of the argument would be a better descriptor than “demystifying”. Very compelling arguments have been made that the government should not interfere with the private decisions of businesses and their customers.
