This is my slide for tech! I aimed to catch the viewer by using three name colors, red, white and blue. In the fanatic word, I spelled it PHanatic, Then I added different colors, those of the Philly Phanatic. These colors appeal to the viewers at a glance, but then also make them observe the details in the slide. The words represent my love for cars. But the colors show my Puerto Rican and American pride, and the phanatic word shows my Philadelphia pride. I then Downloaded my slide as a PDF, and inserted the HTML Embed code to this post. I also gained inspiration from this website.

I hope you enjoy!

Net Neutrality is important, and we need to save it. Net Neutrality save us from being charged bit by bit, and having internet fast lanes. Net Neutrality is important to have because it keeps the internet as a free place."New technologies now allow telecom companies to scrutinize every piece of information we send or receive online." (source This means that the ISP's would be manipulating our data and our internet rights. 
It's important to teach everyone, not just teens, about net neutrality. With a fast paced technology based world, everyone should have access to it. Net neutrality "simulates competition, promotes the spreading of ideas, and protects freedom of speech." ( Services that we use everyday, like netflix, would be restricted. The ISP's would charge more for that service to go through, or charge for their own version of the service. But would we ever know which is faster, or if we're truly getting the fastest internet? Of course not. 
Internet rights are important. We need to educate people about this, because people are unaware of it. I knew nothing about this issue before the class, but now I'm wanting to learn more. People don't understand that the internet is a right, and that the ISPs can restrict our internet data, whether we know it or not.   (

Tech Slide 2.0

It's time for improvement! As you will notice I have stretched the Lamborghini to take up more of the slide. I aim for this car to attract eyes, as they do in real life. I also changed the background color to grey to allow the car and letters to stand out more. I also noticed that the misspelled fanatic and colorful letters took away from my main point I am attempting to communicate, so I just stuck with silver/white.

Jessica Celli Slide #2

I changed my slide only a little bit. I changed the picture so that the head of my dancer wasn't cut off. I also extended the picture of the dancer to take up 1/3 of the slide, to use the rule of thirds from presentation zen. I chose for my slide to look like this so I could play with the contrast of colors. The picture is black and white so it pops against the background, and the purple text makes an even bolder statement.  I chose this font because I was advised by this website:  to not use a "thin stroke" or "ornante font" so that the it would be easy to read. (this is a repost because it wasn't under tech)

Teens and Net Neutrality. Should YOU care?

NEt Neutrailt
Well, you have somehow stumbled upon my blog post. And as you can tell from the title, I am going to talk about Net Neutrality. But first, a little background. Net Neutrality is what is cheapening to your internet data right now! As of the day I am writing this, (12/23/2014) Internet Service Providers are not allowed to treat your data differently than they way they treat mines or anyone else. However, this might change.

Recently there has been a huge debate over this lately. ISP's aren't exactly happy about some of the views in our government. Take president Obama as an example. Many republicans are angry over his view on the matter. Sure, this happens all the time in Washington. You many be interested in this one though, and it does in fact relate to you.

If Net Neutrality is gone, the internet as it is now will be gone. You'll probably run into websites that your ISP ha blocked, because they can. You may also have slower internet, and you will need to pay more if you want faster internet. Which is just what you had before Net neutrally was gone. So chose what you want, a blocked, slowed down internet, or a normal fair one we have now. Because one day, this is going to be in our hands.

All About Aniya

This slide is the new slide that I have created to represent myself. This slide and the slide that I had created before is the same subject but just in a different style. I learned that the first slide that I created was a little bit cluttered and messy so to make it better I had to choose out American Eagle and Pierce The Veil based on which one I am the most attached to and as you can see I picked Pierce The Veil. I think that it is very leveled and that the colors of red black and white goes together cohesively. Then the black rocky background adds texture to the slide and it also adds depth.

Net neutrality

Net neutrality is when all data is produced equally to every person. Net neutrality has keep the internet together and has proved itself efficient in the years passed but some people think otherwise. The net neutrality  word that was created by Tim Wu has been tested by the FCC. The FCC is Federal Communication Commission . The FCC show what content is shown or being produced over tv, , and radio. They decide what is art or totally wholesome to be shown for other people. The Fcc over the years have worked their way into the internet and decided that NO Net Neutrality would be a better way to go for everyone or just them ?

In February the FCC and Tom Wheeler  will be having a meeting on what new rules they want to consider or make for NEt neutrality. This has been a topic that has been circling in media and schools for quite a while now .   NEw rules might new internet service for all of us .    The FCC decides that we should no longer have net neutrality we might all get slower content based on what we pay for and may lose important information which is highly wrong but we do not get a say so in what internet privileges we get even though we are the ones paying for it .

In conclusion we all should agree that net neutrality is good for our whole society. Net neutrality affects no one but all of us. The FCC should stop meddling into the internet and stick to covering content on  the tv, radio . NO one should be treated less than because of their financial income. We fought for equality so lets stay Equal .

​Net neutrality is treating a internet equally.
The ISP's coined the phrase
The FCC doesn't like what the ISP's have been doing with charging people for the fast lane.
They have there own internet run the same as everyone elses because it would be hipocritical.
I think that net neutrality is really important because it is important that we all have the same thing.

Net Neutrality


Why is Net Neutrality important for teens to know about? Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because it shows teens the basics of the internet. It teaches teens to know more than what they think about the internet. Without net neutrality the internet would be a mess and unorganized. Net neutrality is our internet’s “savior”.

Net neutrality controls ISPs. ISPs are middle mans. Without net neutrality they wouldn't be fair and equitable. An ISP is a middle man because it receives the interweb, and then sells it at high prices to the consumers. It also shortens the speed and access. You have to pay more money to get faster speeds on the internet, and access to more websites.

Also, without net neutrality, ISPs would be able to create new plans to charge customers more for access and services. This affects us because it would be difficult for us to interact online with what we want to do on the internet. The internet can become similar to  cable television. Gatekeepers control what we can and get to watch. This unproductive use of the internet may destroy its access.

Net Neutrality, Feliciano Hayes (tech9 - 014 b2)

Net neutrality is affects us teens and kids more than anyone. We as teens, are the future of the internet. Anything that happens with net neutrality affects us more than anyone. It is very important for teens to know about net neutrality. Why? because as a generation that does everything through the internet, we should know what is going on with it.

Net neutrality controls ISPs, or AKA the middle man. Without net neutrality ISP’s wouldn't be fair. ISP’s receive the inter web, and then sells it at high prices to their customers, making it the middle man.They also give you a limited speed and access. People have to pay more money to get faster speeds, and more accessibility to more websites.

Without net neutrality, ISPs would be able to create new plans to charge customers more for services.  This would make it harder for people to interact online. The internet could become similar to the cable television because gatekeepers control what we can and get to watch. This use of the internet is unproductive and might destroy the quality.

Net neutrality is very important for teens to know about, because it can greatly impact their future. Without net neutrality, many of the websites that teens want to visit would be blocked. Teens should know that it will affect their parents also, because their parents will be the ones paying to use certain sites. It is unnecessary, because its already enough that we are paying for internet access, so why should we pay to use it. This generation of teens will not fare well from net neutrality.

Net neutrality can affect a teens learning abilities. For example, many schools, such as SLA are tech based. So if there is no net neutrality, their learning sites will be very limited and their school will have to require more money to pay for the blocked sites. Net neutrality could possibly ruin a school, because it discriminates against the middle and lower class citizens who can’t afford to pay to use certain sites. Public schools will require more money from the government, and this could cripple our financial state.

Teens should know who is supporting net neutrality and who is against it. Once they know all about how crazy the people against it are, they will possibly take actions against it. We must empower young teens to raise their fists for net neutrality. Net neutrality is what keeps the internet growing and thriving. It also keeps I.S.P.’s out of shady deals. This generation of teens is the generation that can save the internet, and that is why it is important for teens to know about net neutrality.

Slide 1 - Friend

Screenshot 2015-01-09 at 8.48.23 AM

The reason I made my slide the way it is, is because the color blue seems to be a cool color which is usually appealing to the average human eye. I used the Caesar Dressing font because this font is used by The Caesar Hotel which is an eye capturing hotel and most people look at  because of its font. The reason I chose to use the words I did is because people like the truth so thats what I gave them. I added that animated picture of me because it went with the theme of the slide and also told who I am. The picture shows me wearing a hoodie of my favorite color which is blue. It also shows me with a controller and headphones which represents me being a gamer. I left the background white because it would help draw more attention to my slide. In a way it’s like moth to a flame. I left everything spaced out but not too spaced out because this gives people a sense of organization but not a sense of emptiness. This is my slide.

New Slide Presentation - Regino

I changed my whole slide from my previous one because I think that a new start makes it easier for me to work on things. White contrasts with a lot of colours, so I thought why not use light blue. I added light blue because it makes a significant contrast with the white lettering in the middle.  I created this image by adding Hangul letters to a light blue background. Light blue also reminds me of the sky, so that's also another reason. The characters in the middle are read starting up going down, and it reads "Park Jimin" which is the name of the cat. The character hiding behind the letters give the audience something to pay attention to, and that is his sole purpose. It's my favourite character from this web comic I read. I also like cats so he symbolizes my liking towards them. Basically, this new slide sums me up because of what I enjoy. Which are, cats, and the colors.

It is very important for teens to know about net neutrality because it is a huge deal. Making the wrong decision with net neutrality could possibly cause protest. Teens are the future of the world and they need to know about very controversial topics. If we don’t then it is more like we will start controversies. If we do know about it than it is less likely we will have controversies.

Net neutrality is the freedom to view all websites without paying an additional fee to few certain websites. It also makes the speed of the internet faster. Now if you're in the one percent than you probably won’t mind having to pay. But if you're the average joe then you should have a problem with this. If ISPs get rid of net neutrality and teens don’t know about it then they won’t be able to restore it when we become the leaders.

Now lets say every teen new about net neutrality. I guess about 63% of them would protest to keep net neutrality. Now say if the ISPs still get rid of net neutrality. When we become the adults we can just restore it. Why? Because we will know that it is a good thing to have because we had to go through it.

Tito's Opinion on - Net Neutrality

What is Net Neutrality?

I got this straight from the online dictionary to give you the simplest explanation: Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

What is Happening to Net Neutrality?

There is an article that was made by John Naughton that clearly explains what the situation is, an although it is currently in the United States, it is very probably for such a thing to spread to other nations.

The principle that all bits traversing the network should be treated equally was a key feature of the internet's original design. It was also one of the reasons why the internet became such an enabler of disruptive innovation. Net neutrality meant that the bits generated by a smart but unknown programmer's application, for instance the web, file-sharing, Skype and Facebook, would be treated the same as bitstreams emanating from a giant corporation. Neutrality kept the barrier to entry low.

So far, so good. But the problem with general principles, however admirable, is that they sometimes create inflexibility. In that sense, net neutrality is like the principle that one should never, ever, tell a lie, not even a small one: excellent in principle, unfeasible in practice. The internet works by breaking each communication into small data packets and dispatching them, often by different routes, to their destination, where they are reassembled into the original communication. This was fine in the early days, when most communications were files and emails, and it didn't matter if the packets failed to arrive in an orderly stream. But once innovations such as internet telephony, streaming audio and video emerged, it looked like a good idea to give them privileged treatment because otherwise quality was degraded.

When media corporations such as Netflix came along, they were outraged that their bits had to travel in the same third-class carriages as everybody else's. Which, of course, led big ISPs to the idea that they could put those bitstreams into a fast lane and charge their owners accordingly, thereby earning more revenue and throwing neutrality out of the window.

In the US, the neutrality buck stops with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), historically a doughty supporter of the principle. Since last January, however, the FCC has been impaled on the horns of an appeal court decision. Verizon, the huge US ISP, successfully challenged the FCC's rules on neutrality. The court ruled that the commission did not have the right to prevent Verizon from charging a fee for traffic carried on its network and since that point Verizon has been billing Netflix for providing a fast lane for its content to Verizon subscribers.

Mulling its options in April, the FCC concluded that, to stay within the law, it would have to allow ISPs to charge for providing fast lanes so long as the terms were "commercially reasonable". Anticipating the outrage that this violation of the neutrality principle would generate, the commission put the draft ruling out for a period of public consultation that closed on 15 July.

You can imagine what happened. The commission was deluged by public comments, most of them online. It had to add extra capacity to cope with the fallout from Oliver's broadcast. By deadline day, it had received nearly a million submissions, the vast majority of which were probably hostile to the proposed new ruling.

Also received were a much smaller number of submissions from corporations. Verizon, for example, filed a 184-page comment written by five lawyers. Comcast, another huge ISP, submitted a 71-page document. Other companies (internet giants and telecoms mainly) did much the same.

Guess which submissions the FCC will take seriously?

You know the answer. All the public submissions will be read and most of them rejected. This not because FCC officials are biased or corrupt. It's just that they can't do anything with expressions of outrage or affirmations of values. They're charged by Congress with making rules that can stand up to legal challenge. They need submissions that have evidence and arguments, things that most laypeople are not in a position to provide. Sad but true: even in a democracy, rulemaking can't be done by plebiscite, online or off. And that noise you're hearing is the ghost of Edmund Burke cheering.

The Philosophy

It is stupid for companies to do this to us, honestly the fact that there are people going against net neutrality is insanely stupid and I can't even imagine how idiotic some people can be. The internet is a place with billions of gigabytes of information, a cloud with vast numbers of intelligence and information. It is an archive of events both positive and negative and it is a useful element to the evolution of the human race.

The Past

When my father was working as one of the leading members in the team that brought the internet to Italy, many of the people that worked by his side did not imagine a web that is imprisoned by the plagued ISP's (my dad's name is Andrea Mazzucchi, in case you wanted to look him up). Their vision of what the power of the internet could do was young and positive. People like them, people who are the reason why companies like Comcast and Verizon exist, the reason why they have the power they have today, and I don't care how many lawyers they have in their stupid contracts, they are WRONG.

The Effect

If the internet was not working to it's fullest capacity, then there would be hundreds of thousands of people who would not be able to access it due to the price increments and the overall difficulty of using it. If this was the case then many protests like the ones in North Africa, where twitter and social networks like those were used, people used them as a method to organize a protest against an unfair law or unfair government choice or policy. Think about school! The protest me and my fellow classmates did to help support our teachers was organized using the web! If people would of had trouble accessing the internet, then how could the protest be as efficient as how it was before?

The Dream

I have a dream, a dream where boys and girls, women and children, men and seniors, can live in peace and serenity under the ways of Net Neutrality. I have a dream where history's events do not reenact themselves, where unfairness and stealing from the money we pay to speak out to the world, the very words that change who we are as a species does not occur. I have a dream that one day I will be able to provide for my family without having to worry about spending too much money to have a normal connection and that what I can do with the internet will change the world in a positive way, forever.

What will happen to us?

Not all of us can afford to use the internet now, and not all of us have access to the wonderful privilege of using an endless archive of information. If Internet Service Providers were to increase the cost in exchange of having a weaker connection many more people will be doomed, excluded form a virtual paradise. What will happen to those people? The same ones who will never be able to access the online news, the ones who won't be able to vote online for important events that impact THEIR lives along with the REST of the people around them. Their lives will never be the same... that's what will happen.


I have had a problem for a long, long time. Since as long as I could remember, I was lost. I used to sit out from class and think for hours of what would happen to me in the future, what I was going to do, what did I want to do. I remember this sort of depression that was on me since always, this shadow that blurred my vision of my future. Now, I am happy to say that this thing is fading, the disease in me, the same one that I had since the beginning of my childhood is finally going away. I now know what I want to do, where I want to go, what I want my legacy to be.

My dream is to make videos, YouTube videos. Like pewdiepie and many of the great YouTubers before him I want to change the world in a positive way, by doing what I love doing best. To be able to provide for a family using my imagination, my passion and my heart. How can I make videos without internet connection? How am I going to be able to fulfill my dream, if the dream itself doesn't exist??


For anyone who already doesn't know, the death of net neutrality is basically what will stop your connection, what will steal your money, and what will please the greedy bastards who call themselves Verizon and Comcast. Do you truly think that if this was to happen, that it would stop there? No, no, what I mentioned was merely the beginning. They Internet Service Providers will only get greedier, they won't stop here. This will spread across the world if we let it, to the point where people from different sides will not be able to communicate. That's right, no longer will you be able to Skype your relatives if you go off on a trip, and no longer will you meet wonderful people that can change the way you think.

Copy of About Me
My slide includes pictures that describe me, my personality, and what I like to do. The "#Maddie" matches the "love" on my shirt so it will be eye-catching and it will grasp your attention. I figured adding other things that I like that it will just make my slide pop and add more personality to it. My slide shows everything about me and how I see things.. Enjoy!

It's Clearly About Me (Ijustice Avery)

My slide is clearly all about me.  I designed my slide based on my favorite colors and my background is one of my favorite pair of sneakers.  These colors contrast but they are also compatible with one another.  They also match the sneakers in the background. But, I didn’t just choose these colors because I them, they are suppose to represent that I have a colorful personality.  I tried to make my slide as short as possible but also to have a lot of information about me as a person.   My slide isn’t just a slide, it has meaning.  The picture in the background represents something in my life.  The sneakers  resemble my sneaker game and they are basketball sneakers so they also represent how ball is life.  The 23 on the sneaker represents January 23rd which happens to be the day my uncle died.  He had a big impact on my life and I wanted to show love to him.  Finally, the mansion door in the back represents how tough times don’t last, and if you really try you can succeed.

Justin's slide #2

Tech Slide
What I learned was making something more simpler. My last slide had so much color and the background was shoes with all sorts of colors. I think that the new slide I made represents the one true thing about me. That the organization I play for is what my whole life is about, supporting my second family through sports and events. I made the quote we use to each other in black and white because white on black is simple. I put the picture with the four corners as if the background was fading into the picture. I think that it makes the background bleed through the pictures which in my opinion is a cool tool to use. I used the same font for each word in the picture because each word means something.

Why is net neutrality important for teens to know about? 

Net neutrality is important for teens to know because teens like freedom. Net neutrality is the freedom of internet use that is in the edge of getting taken away. Teens should learn more net neutrality because they spend most of their time using internet for everything. I think that if teens don t know about net neutrality they would get mad if their ISP made the "fast lanes" to slow down some of the sites they use.
Its important for teens to know net neutrality because if their freedom of internet get taken away, they could get mad and doesn't realize what was happening. If we don't have net neutrality we wouldn't have equal internet access from our ISPs. If we don't have it, some of the sites that we use will be slower than the other sites, such as Netflix. Teens now are on Netflix to watch lots of movies and if the ISP makes the use of Netflix slower, it would be a big problem.
If the ISPs get to make their fast lanes and net neutrality is taken away, we might have to pay more for the internet we use daily. Teens should know about the rights that they have online. The next generation of kids won't know what its like to have networking rights. I hope that teens will understand how important it is for them to know about net neutrality.

​Why is net neutrality important for teens to know about?

Net neutrality is very important in our society and can take over the rights of anybody who doesn't know what is going on. Especially teens and younger adults. With the amount of time kids today spend on social media and internet connections, we need them to be well aware of stuff going on on the internet. ISP's are trying to control what they go on and what they can and cannot see. They are also trying to take away the speed of internet and basically make you pay more for the same speed you have now. We as a society need to keep our teens and kids aware of these problem to help make a difference and keep them safe while on the internet.

ISP's are trying to control our internet and are restricting what we go on and what we watch. We need our kids to know this so they can know what is right and wrong, because our kids are our future and have voices too. This is also not just affect adult but will also affect them. ISP's might take away the social medias we all love to go on or not allow us access of it. This will hurt for connecting with other and sending messages. 

Also ISP's are trying to higher the cost of speeds given on the internet, while only still giving the same amount of speed as you've always had. If providers start to control the internet they will have no competition and you will no longer have a choice. We would either have no internet or pay way more for the same speed we've always had. These are why we need our teens to know the dangers of net neutrality, and no one can try to manipulate our kids into something that will hurt their internet. Let your kids know what net neutrality is and one day they will have the voices to keep our internet safe.

​I think that net neutrality is very important for teenagers. One way net neutrality will help you is when you are in need to watch a movie in school. If the teacher tries to watch a movie in class to teach you and the movie is blocked doesn't allow access, then it could stop your learning. I think that this is unfair to happen because some kids doesn't want to hear lectures all the time. Movies that help you learn gives you a break from lectures and when the movie isn't working, then the kids may hear more lectures.

Net neutrality helps students with homework. Like in this school, we have computers. Most homework is assigned online. If a certain website isn't allowed to be access then the student will have trouble with problems. The school may not have enough money to get the websites to be accessed. This could be a real problem to students learning through the internet. 

Net neutrality can help teenagers with their learning. When students are researching in class, the internet could be a problem. The internet could become slower if the school isn't paying their provider enough money for faster internet. That makes the students education slow as well. This can cause slow learning for student who are learning through the internet.

Net Neutrality is important for teens to know, because it helps them realize how much freedom net neutrality allows us to have and helps us not take it for granted. It also helps teens learn more about I.S.P and what their jobs are and how they affect net neutrality. It helps them see that Internet Service Providers doesn’t give us the freedom that we deserve to have on our website.  Net neutrality is also important for teens to know because it treats all the data you get from a website fairly and keeps it safe.  Like, for example if you were trying to get on both YouTube and Facebook, the internet and the I.S.P's could limit your speed and charge you while net neutrality would allow you to browse and access both freely and not make you pay a charge.

I.S.Ps  want to charge you for almost every time you get on your network. Unlike Net Neutrality which allows every website you visit to have no limits for you usage. Net Neutrality also gives you freedom to use any website you want and doesn’t charge you a monthly fee for the website you are using. Internet Service Providers also want to control how much internet you use which limits your time on it. They create illegal downloads which charge you for how much internet you use and this is not fair.

Companies like Comcast and Verizon can be very crafty and can block a website or source you want to use and make their own and charge you for it. This makes you pay more money while you can easily use a website that would charge you less. This is why Net Neutrality is so important because t lets you use any website you want. Open Internet, which is another way to say free internet, avoids high and unfair prices, it limits competitiveness  from other companies, it allows more ideas, and allows you to use any speech you want.

Net Neutrality!
In a word without Net Neutrality, little Jimmy tries to watch Netflix on his Xfinity internet. He goes to the profiles, chooses his, then wants to watch Scrubs. He presses play, then waits for it to load. While waiting, he sees his homework pile up on his desk, and just wants to watch that season finale. It's been four hours, and now hes just asleep on the keyboard, and it's finally loaded the first minute! This is the world without the Net Neutrality.

Johny decides that he wants to watch something. Unlike Jimmy, he doesn't have a subscription to Netflix, but still has Xfinity, so he watches the TV section of Comcast. He watches Divergent, and it loads instantly! It doesn't even take a minute, and he is already watching the movie, but with Netflix he would ave to wait hours in end. 

In this world, Netflix is always slow. YouTube is even slower, and Hulu, well nobody uses Hulu. In this world, it is slowed by the internet providers. It doesn't matter if you pay extra, it is still slower than an old man.
