This blog post in protest at SOPA/PIPA

Looks like the old US government is finding out the power of the internet to inform and organize.

Personally i have to admit i don’t know a whole lot about this proposed legislation.

But what I do know sounds terrible.

One of the great things about the internet is its statelessness and the way it polices itself. and the fact that if the power goes out, there is no internet. good to remember too.

Any attempt to control it, much less at the behest of large media companies, just seems ill advised to say the least.

So a hearty BOO! to SOPA and PIPA.

But of course SOAP and PIPPA are still cool.

  1. I sent the same email to all of my reps. It went like this:

    If you’ve got my back, you’ve got my vote. Say no to SOPA and PIPA.

    No responses yet, but I am monitoring them. Election year bloodbath (figuratively speaking), here we come.
