-The online world can be feel like a free and open space. Yet, it is controlled by only a handful of major Internet Service Providers (ISPs). While we grow to rely on the web for our work, education, and our social life, we also become more reliant on these companies. What makes them the most hated companies in the US? Why did they kill Net Neutrality? How do they snoop on their users? What alternatives are out there? If any of these questions resonate with you, then join the CyPurr Collective at the Info Commons Lab of the Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch as we go over the structure of the net and how to defend your privacy.
