How to participate
On September 10th, sites across the web will display an alert with a symbolic “loading” symbol (the proverbial “spinning wheel of death”) and promote a call to action for users to push comments to the FCC, Congress, and the White House. Note: none of these tools actually slow your site down; they tell your visitors about the issue and ask them to contact lawmakers.
- Do you have a website or blog? Get the code, and run it all day on September 10th.
- Know anyone with a popular iPhone or Android app? Ask them to send a push notification.
- Is social media your biggest audience? Change your avatar to a spinning wheel of death. Orshare these images on Facebook.
Be creative! Grab peoples’ attention with a loading symbol, and link to tools for emailing and calling lawmakers (e.g. battleforthenet.com). Whatever you decide, tell us you’re participating, announce it publicly, and commit to getting *one* person or company with a *bigger* reach than you to join in as well. Got a question? Contact us.
