In an economy with too few jobs to offer displaced workers, some have taken a deep breath and started a home business. Others are employed by companies with home-based worker programs.
These folks are the fastest growing segment of the economy, and they don’t get enough respect, says Community Economics Lab, a consulting firm that has a pilot program in Los Lunas. Its goal is to find ways to support home-based workers.
It’s one more reason to be concerned about the Internet. Last week 400 people attended a town hall in Albuquerque to discuss net neutrality. Organized by advocacy groups, the meeting targeted minorities. It was no accident that it coincided with the National Congress of American Indians’ annual convention.
“Net neutrality” means that Internet service providers treat all content, from the Viagra ad to your mom’s e-mail, equally. It’s become a debate over whether government or corporations should control the Net.
A few years ago Comcast secretly blocked traffic from BitTorrent, a file-sharing application provider. When users found out, they made a stink.
Comcast subsequently agreed to work with BitTorrent, but advocacy groups demanded that the Federal Communications Commission keep Internet providers in line.
