So I have started researching the issue of Net Neutrality, and last night I went to a Net Neutrality debate held by Google and Verizon at the IAC building as part of the Web 2.0 Expo. The debate was about the passing of legislation for a net neutrality law which would state that no discrimination could be made in regards to who can access the internet, what applications get more space, and who can contact who else on the internet. At the beginning of the debate, the audience was asked to vote on their feelings towards the topic, either for passing legislature, against passing legislature or undecided on the topic. At the end of the debate they once again had people vote on how they felt, to see if anyone had been swayed. The number of people who changed their opinion to "for" the legislation was 30%, increasing the number from 50% to 80%. The amount of people who decided they were "against" the legislation increased from 12% to 14%. The "undecided" dropped from 38% to 6%.
