Brace yourself, AOL.
This is getting really interesting, and really, really weird.
Close on the heels of MoveOn.org’s petition earlier this week, The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), together with media policy group Free Press, will announce on Tuesday a coalition of advocacy groups is uniting to oppose what’s been dubbed AOL’s “e-mail tax,” or Enhanced Whitelist.
And oh boy, it’s some coalition. So far, it includes Craigslist’s Craig Newmark, Gun Owners of America, MoveOn.org Civic Action, and the Association of Cancer Online Resources.
“Dozens of other concerned groups will be announced on the call,” promises the EFF.
I can’t wait.
