More from Alexis:
On January 18, 2012, tens of millions of Americans defeated SOPA and PIPA two bills that threatened the Internet, one of the healthiest parts of the American economy.
And now we’re making sure our government understands just how important the Internet is to all Americans. This October we’re taking a bus (literally half red, half blue) from Denver, CO to Danville, KY to campaign for the Internet during the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates.
The Internet 2012 bus will collect, document and share stories throughout the American heartland, because this isn’t just about Silicon Valley. It’s about parents taking Skillshare classes on blogging in Boulder, TED meetups in Omaha, Kentucky folk festivals that get funded on Kickstarter, artists in Missouri who can sell to the world on Etsy and retirees who can make some extra money renting out a room on Airbnb. Thanks to the Open Internet, people are learning marketable skills that are turning them from unemployed to gainfully employed.
