revelrysociety: On September 7th of last year The Society for the Preservation of Historic Revelry embarked on one of its most ambitious expeditions: The Arthur Erickson Dinner Series. With a mandate to gather, party, and collect content at every Arthur Erickson site in the province of British Columbia, small teams have been assembling themselves outside Erickson sites as part of the Revelry Society’s 5th Official Expedition.
It is with great excitement that this journey continues, over a year since it started at the law courts in Vancouver’s downtown core, with a 4th dining event at the Museum of Anthropology on the UBC campus in West Vancouver.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
