Tech Activism

When Canada was considering a metered internet that would have you pay by the download, we thought that would hurt sales of security cameras (which use a lot of data when you view them). So, we made a spin-off "business" that promised to mail you parts of the internet on CD. We then showed that we could pay a person to download things from the internet, burn them on a CD, and mail them from one country to another - all for less money than what the Canadian ISPs wanted to charge for just downloading something. Over 5 Million people visited our "business" in 48 hours and over 10 Million in a week. We made the international press. It obviously wasn't a business intended to make money - we just took donations.
