Net neutrality is a very important set of rules that many people believe should be put in the ¨book of internet rules¨. Basically net neutrality is the rules that would govern the fairness of the internet. Internet Service Providers or ISPs sort of rule the internet right now and net neutrality would govern what they can and couldn’t do. Essentially net neutrality would make sure everything was fair with the internet, no fast lane or slow lanes and no slowing down content if it’s legal. Net neutrality is liked and wanted by numerous people, including our President Barack Obama.
Right now there are a couple problems with the internet, a lot of that having to do with net neutrality not being enforced. Currently the ISPs have been slowing down certain sites and then asking if they want to pay extra for a fast lane. This type of thing happened with Netflix and it got them pretty angry. The ISPs have a serious power over the internet and without these rules they could speed up, slow down, or block content as they wanted.
Now that you know what Net Neutrality is and what’s wrong, I’ll explain why its important for this upcoming generation and the generations after them to know more about net neutrality. Teens these days and even young children go on the internet constantly and it really affects their daily life. Also they are going to grow up and have to deal with these problems. It’s really important that teens are prepared and knowledgeable about the internet and what’s going on with it. If they aren’t and the internet is still part of their daily lives they will just be affected by the decisions made and not be able to participate in fixing it or preventing bad usage. In general as long as they know what’s going on they have the ability and chance to take a stand for what will affect them in the future and now.
Teens should know about Net Neutrality because it teaches them about the internet and what is going on with it. With net neutrality, we are able to have equal access of internet. Not only that, we won’t argue about having faster internet than others. Teens need to know about the equal access and know that their parents are paying the same amount of money. If we don’t have net neutrality, we will have to pay more for faster internet when they will probably trick you into thinking that your internet is faster when it is actually slowing down. Without Net neutrality some web page will be block and that won’t be fair because you will have to pay more to access it. They will make media such as netflix and skype be slow or maybe even blocking it.
Net neutrality is also important to teen because without net neutrality it will affect our education. Teens may be doing their homework and need access to a certain website but can’t get on it unless they pay more. Not everyone is rich so that won’t be fair because some people that are broke won’t be able to afford it when they are trying to get a good education. It also won’t be fair for the person who is paying for your internet. For example your parents. Your parents would have to pay more when they have to worry about their bills and other things that need to be pay off. With net neutrality. we won’t have these problem because everyone will have equal access of the internet and you won’t have to pay more to view a certain webpage.
Teens also need to know that not all internet service provider have net neutrality. That mean that some service provider are charging you for website and faster speed without you knowing. For example Version and Comcast. Not only teens but I believed that parent need to know about this too. Internet service provider like Verizon and Comcast believes that making people pay more for faster internet and website access is better because they are able to control what you can get on. That is unfair and teens should know about these thing so we can prevent these things from happening and maybe checking to make sure they are not doing this to you.
I made all of my text in sans-serif because I found that sans-serif looks better on the web while serif is easier to read in printed works. Keeping that in mind, I made the quote marks and coma more curved to contrast against the quote which is still in sans-serif, but seems sharper. I also changed the typeface of “Hans Christian Andersen” so that it was not the same typeface as the quote.
When discussing different fonts such as sans-serif and serif I used this website:
This is a slide that depicts my nature in a limited amount of space and items. I took information from the websites provided and used that to help me design and add character to my slide.I used contrast, bleeding, and I made the slide straight to the point. I like the image of some geometric figures because it adds a cool element to the simplicity of the slide. All three of these items make up a simple yet intricate display of who I am, plus it adds a simple message that adds character and color to the slide. I pulled inspiration from websites like Tumblr and Pinterest where this type of look is used quite a lot. I wanted to use these different image styles to reflect the vision I had prior to the creation of this slide. Also, the videos and examples of different billboards helped me to design the slide. My classmates helped me out by giving me suggestions on how to make the font bigger and to add a picture that tied in more with the quote.
For my second slide I took the advice to change the text because it went against the message I wanted to give. It was make things happen, but the text was broken,so i chose to use a more solid text. I put it at the bottom of the slide so the entire picture could be seen without the words interjecting it. I chose a new picture that better correlates with my message, and would be more visually appealing.
For my new slide I changed mainly the outline of the text’s color. My classmates wanted me to make the text itself seem “lost” as well so I picked a color that blended in with my background image more. At first I thought of blurring the text, but unfortunately chrome does not have a setting for this.
This new slide that I have made still embodies some of the same ideas as my last slide, contrast and simplicity. This time, I slightly decreased the text size this time, because for the text to fully fit, it had to be lessened in size. I thought about bleeding the sky in some sort, but my conclusion was that bleeding would lose the grasp of the subject, just like the first slide. The colors were chosen with more thought now. Blue and white I felt were still good to have from the first slide, but people told me red didn’t work well on the last slide, so this time I chose yellow. I chose yellow instead of red this time, because the yellow stood out more, this time standing out more than the red, blue, and white. The has more of a contrast which I think makes a better meaning to the quote than before. I moved the text to the middle at the horizon because its at the cusp now of greatness or failure. The text type was chosen with intention. The thought behind was that the semi soft text represents a sort of boundary how it can be straight (like the words) but soft (the individual letters). I made the text slightly different because although people said it didn’t really go well with the slide, I felt the text made the quote.While we see the text, you notice it is capitalized? Well I did that to show that each word is a part of a sentence like a minute is part of an hour.
