Growing up, I was always shy. I never spoke up or said how I was feeling. It all changed when I discovered musical theater, my gateway to music. I began to open up, and sing my heart out and express who I really was, finally breaking free from my shyness. After this, I was exposed to how powerful music can truly be. Now, music is what helps me through anything and everything. It motivates me and inspires me, and I don’t know who I would be without it.
I decided to dedicate my slide to the one thing that symbolizes who I am. A picture of a girl holding a record in front of her face symbolizes music, and also shyness. I liked the black and white aspect to keep things simple and to keep the mood calming and serious. It is a picture from Tumblr, because I wanted it to be artistic and unique. I made the font big and clear to see with varying font styles. The pink font made it pop and added a little bit of positivity with the contrasting “escape” to make that word stick out most because it is the end of the meaningful statement. This slide is simple like any good visual campaign should be. Sometimes, less is more and holds more value, but nothing like the value music holds to me.
Presentation Zen was a great source for me to use because it directed my presentation and gave meaning to it. I made the background white with a mainly black picture and bold, brightly colored lettering. I made the majority of my quote a pink color that seemed to fit my slide well. My last word, escape, which I find very symbolic, I underlined, changed the font, and made black to really stand out against the white. Presentation Zen gave the idea that having the one image used, to keep the focus simple, to have the image bleed off of the slide, which I chose not to do on purpose due to the fact my picture was a square and I liked the look better with having white bordering it. That’s my presentation!
I believe that Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because it directly correlates to our future being that we are internet babies. There has never been a point where technologies have been unavailable to us. If net neutrality were to be terminated it would obviously affect the speed of our internet; whether it be faster or slower. In some cases not having net neutrality would be an advantage, purely because our internet streaming becomes faster but not without a price. Those who would possess the internet fast lane would be paying an outrageous amount of money and may be limited to certain internet service providers. Those who do not invest the extra money will have their internet pipe squeezed so that so little internet comes through and will become detrimental to our living and productivity.
If Net Neutrality is enforced then it potentially can exclude an entire market for those generations coming into the workforce. If an individual had an interest in working for an internet provider such as comcast, cable, etc then they would have to seriously evaluate the situation and their future. Having Net Neutrality will mean that providers will lose their incentive to continue investing in projects that improve their networks and expanding into areas with limited or unlimited internet access. Therefore they may be less willing to take on new employees when the ISP market will no longer be thriving. Many jobs will not be available in the United States because Russia and China will gain control over ISP’s, we certainly do not more overseas jobs than we already have.
If net neutrality is enforced then we have control of what we can view on the internet without any restrictions. There are currently no restrictions on areas and content on the internet that people can access unless directly enforced from the government. All IMing, emailing, sharing files, etc are not restricted and without Net Neutrality that freedom is potentially at risk. No capitalism, throttling, censorship, and restrictions are all available using Net Neutrality and imagine what the internet would be like without those privileges. In conclusion Net Neutrality is in favor to the people and not favorable to the alternate.
Net Neutrality is basically the principle of an internet service provider that helps you access anything on the internet without being blocked. If it goes away, you’ll get blocked from websites that you go on everyday for no reason. And you’ll probably have to pay for speed. Which is really ridiculous. Because people should not be block from any websites, sometimes, those websites that are blocked are really useful in daily life.
When you pay more for it, you get more data; But when you pay less, you don’t get as much data. Data throttling is used by wireless carriers to help make sure that their networks are working good and efficiently and as quickly as possible for everyone. But the wireless carriers will slow down connection speeds for users who use more data than the average customer. And it is happening. Have you wondered why you phone is so slow? Well, that’s the work of data throttling. And what can you do when you are in an emergency that you really need to send something to someone, or do anything? Nothing.
European countries, like France do not have open internet. And the UK government are trying to “close” the internet right now. I am really wondering why? May be they don’t have as much freedom as us, the U.S.A.? Anyway, it is unfair. Government want to make laws to keep the peace, okay then. But they want to control what people can see or no online? No, that is so not what the government in UK should do.http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2013/09/20/what-europe-can-teach-us-about-k
Some teens don't know what Net Neutrality is. An exact definition would be, ¨Not discriminating or charging deferentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication¨. This means that we can use a certain bit of the internet and the rest is held in the safety of some people. But now the problem is that people want to decide what we should use for the internet, and control our freedom on the computer. Also people are trying to get faster internet but are being tricked into getting ¨faster internet¨.
Its important for teens to know if Net Neutrality can hurt you.The people that get ¨hurt¨ from ¨Data Equality¨ are the service providers, because they lose money mostly from having data equality. In the video it said they usually also provide phones and cable but the internet can do that too so to cover the money that they lose by charging for ¨faster¨ internet services. One of the problems you can run into is getting ¨faster internet¨ but having to watch a lot of ad's. That sucks, no one likes that. Sometimes you should stick with what you have instead of getting this ¨better deal¨.

Net neutrality, the idea that ISPs have to treat all data the same. This principle, which is key in maintaining internet costs and safety, is at jeopardy. It is very important for teens to know about because theyŕe leading the internet charge. They’re going to lead the way for the next long while in “internet years,” changing everything that happens. Teens need to know so they can make the right choices and understand why net neutrality would be bad.
Young people are also the main users of the internet currently. This matters because they are going to be the main users of the internet for a while, perhaps. Eventually, hopefully, there will be 100% of usage of the internet, and it won’t matter, but for now, it does. Therefore, teens need to understand why it would be horrible for everyone but the ISPs if net neutrality is dropped. Suddenly, everyone will be paying loads more for the “fast lane” which would just be the same thing that we have now. Students may get hurt as well; if you’re trying to learn and just get told “NO” because the website owner didn't pay the fee, that could be a huge boon to you education gone. Just like that.All in all, it’s very important that teens understand net neutrality. It will help the ISPs, but only in ways that would involve the citizens paying more for something that really doesn't need to be payed more for. The future leaders of the internet should be educated. The internet is beautiful and extremely useful, and it would be worthy to keep that way.
