I am R. David Edelman. President Obama just announced his plan to keep the internet open and free. I work for him. Ask me anything.
Hey Reddit, I'm R. David Edelman, Senior Advisor for Technology and Economic Policy at the White House. That means I get to work on a range of tech and internet issues near and dear to you all, including net neutrality. The President just made a big announcement on that today and is urging the FCC to keep the internet open and free. You can check out the President's plan here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/net-neutrality
I'll be here at 2pm ET to answer your questions about the President's plan and what it means. Ask me anything.
