This Monday the 28th is being called “Cyber Monday,” a term invented by the National Retail Federation back in 2005 because a bunch of fat people pepper-spraying each other at Walmart on Black Friday wasn’t enough for them. While there is no shame in getting a bargain on that new “Xbox video game player,” Cyber Monday can take on a much deeper meaning this year.
Before we get lost in a frenzy of online shopping swarms and start DDoSing our competition out of the way and shilling our way to online auction victories, let’s take a moment to appreciate the very thing that makes many of your “cyber” gadgets useful in the first place: El Internet. Without El Internet and data libre, many of our hi-tech toys would be rendered useless or with inhibited functionality. So this cyber Monday, somewhere between making a shopping list and entering the CVS code on your credit card, take a moment to preserve this wonderful El Internet.
