We’ve been super fortunate here at Tumblr to be involved in a number of important public policy efforts over the years, and right now we’re keeping close watch on the debate around net neutrality.
As part of our efforts, we sent Ali (Tumblr Legal) and Liba (Tumblr Policy & Causes) down to DC last Friday, filed a letter with the FCC, and joined an industry letter (along with companies like Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter, and our parent Yahoo) to the FCC urging them to act in favor of net neutrality. Our close friend Brad Burnham at Union Square Ventures also filed a wonderful letter focusing on how net neutrality is critical for nascent startups.
If you have any questions or ideas about how the Tumblr community can get involved in this issue, please drop us a note!
