free press

Some on these lists have no doubt seen this message.  For those who
haven't, I thought it important enough to share.  Although it's a
Massachusetts initiative, I'm even sending to the Greater New
Hampshire Linux User Groups because like so many issues, if there is
good precedent then other states follow.  I think anyone is free to
sign the petition.

The "Free Press" organization ( is
campaigning to provide millions of people in Massachusetts with
high-speed Internet access.

Last August, legislation was created to provide $40 million to connect
affordable high-speed Internet in Massachusetts. The build-out plan is
still being developed and the Massachusetts Broadband Institute (MBI)
is looking for ideas about how best to bring broadband to the
__unserved__ communities of Massachusetts.

Please visit the URL below to check out what's at stake and sign on to
Free Press's principles to provide an open, affordable Internet for
all of Massachusetts residents:
