Open Internet Coalition
- Homepage: http://www.openinternetcoalition.org/
April 2010: "The Internet has been the most successful platform for economic growth, innovation and discovery in our nation’s history. The Open Internet Coalition represents consumers, grassroots organizations, and businesses working in pursuit of a shared goal: keeping the Internet fast, open and accessible to all Americans.
Our coalition speaks for tens of millions of Americans and spans the entire political spectrum. We stand together for protecting an open Internet where everyone can access what they want when they want. In Washington and state capitals across the country we’re working for policies like network neutrality and universal access to high-speed Internet connections that will benefit all of us, not just the large phone and cable companies who sell connections to the Internet.

April 2010: '"If you are trying to engage as many people as possible, social media is tremendous. . . . I don't know what I would call it. A tactic? I guess so, because it is very valuable tactically to connect with people who are like-minded," said Jonah Seiger, managing partner of Connections Media, which represents clients including Google and Skype as part of a pro-net neutrality group called the Open Internet Coalition.'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/23/AR2010042305249.html

QUOTE: The influence peddlers of K Street have discovered the power of social networking on such Web sites as Twitter and Facebook. Using their own names without mentioning that they work in public relations or as lobbyists, employees of companies with interests in Washington are chattering online to shape opinions in hard-to-detect ways.
