Have you ever wondered what the “hipsters” at the SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas thought about Net Neutrality?
Answer: Steven Crowder finds out.
As a huge computer and social media geek, I believe Net Neutrality is one of the worst concepts jotted down on paper:
Net Neutrality is a proposed set of regulatory powers that would grant the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the ability to control how Internet service providers (ISPs) package their services. Proponents argue that such rules are necessary to ensure that ISPs treat all data on the Internet equally and don’t slow or even restrict access to various websites and other parts of the Internet.
However well-intentioned, the practical effect will be to limit consumer choice and grant the federal government unprecedented power over the Internet, all in the name of fixing a problem that doesn’t exist in any meaningful way. Indeed, examples of the behavior that Net Neutrality will combat are few and far between.

Remember when President Obama spoke to Hampton University graduates last week explaining that a 24/7 media environment and technology – such as iPods, iPads, Playstations, and Xboxes – can be a distraction? If you don’t, here you go:
Really Mr. President?… You’re attacking technology when you ran your campaign on being the ‘tech-savvy’ political candidate? You even went so far as to attack Sen. McCain (R-AZ) for not sending his own emails. Why couldn’t he? Because of the injuries he sustained from being tortured in the Vietnam War. I must say, that was pure class in itself.
Anyways, getting down to the funny picture… Since President Obama admitted that he doesn’t know how to use any of this technology, here’s what his Xbox controller would look like:
It makes so much sense now!
Props to TobyToons for this one.
