There’s a few fun, exciting, labor-intensive updates to share:
You may have noticed I have a proliferation of new Facebook Fan Pages. Many of my shows are growing and need their own dedicated feeds separate from my personal Facebook & Twitter feeds. The one that’s about to pop is “Horror Talk with Kristin West“. Follow us on Twitter & LIKE us on Facebook so that you’re up-to-date. After all, have no #FOMO if you’re connected.
Net neutrality concerns all of us. Actor friend Carl Bressler just gave me the scoop on Facebook on how to petition the FCC to keep the net neutral.
Here’s how to do it, courtesy of Carl:
1. On your computer, not your phone! – go to: www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express
2. Enter under Proceeding the numbers 17-108.
3. In comments, say you support Title 2 oversight of ISPs. Also say that you support net neutrality.
*Fill in the form carefully; they’ve made it less friendly and impossible to fill in by phone, on purpose.
Here was what I wrote to the FCC:
I support Title 2 oversight of ISPs. I support net neutrality. Like the printing press of the 1400s, the internet fundamentally democratized the way we communicate, make it easier for everyone to have a voice–not just leaders or the wealthy. Any attempt to de-neutralize the internet is deeply damaging to our freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of assembly and no “free market” consideration should ever infringe on our freedoms of speech, press and assembly.
So many of us actors and other creatives are now really in the business of content creation, just as much as we are in the entertainment biz or the movie biz. The neutral net has created immense opportunities for us to showcase our talents and a net that is not neutral will limit what audiences we can reach. It is important for every creative to fight for net neutrality.
Powerhouse producers & directors came on What Women Want Talk Radio to show us what more inclusive filmmaking can and should be. Listen to this compelling interview with the teams behind two successful films, Murder in the Woods and Seeking Valentina.
