Another Advocacy Use for Posterous: Distributing Net Neutrality Comments

Earlier in the week, we saw how Charles Lenchner is using the document hosting/distribution site Posterus to help track emails, and already we get to check out another cool advocacy-related way to put the site to use, in this case by Josh Levy (formerly of tPrez) and the folks at Free Press:

Over the past few days, we’ve been scouring the FCC docket on Net Neutrality looking for quotes from everyday people that illustrate the need for an open Internet.

Last night, we built an easy way to post those quotes in public. We’re now posting our favorite pro-NN quotes at They’re automatically retweeted via the Free Press Twitter account, with the hashtags #netneutrality and #docket, to get them to as many people as possible.

This way, people can follow and retweet as we uncover good stories. It’s just getting started, but it’s already getting some traction. Check it out.

Neato! Build the tools, and someone in the advocacy community will give ’em a try. What’s next?
