You may already be familiar with the proposed legislation (SOPA in the House, PIPA in the Senate) that would, in effect, shut down this blog and a host of other internet sites if enacted. I want the internet to remain a place of free exchange of uncensored information and ideas. I want to continue my form of advocacy and I support the rights of others to do the same. Therefore I am joining in the blackout on January 18 from 8am to 8pm to protest these awful bills, to help raise awareness and get people to take action.
If you want to read more about SOPA/PIPA or want to know how to fight back, everything is here. This is the page that I will be directing visitors to tomorrow. I WILL be on Twitter tomorrow, following and sharing news about the #SOPAstrike. The blog will be live again at 8pm. Please consider calling or writing your Senators and Representative in opposition to PIPA and SOPA.
