Blackouts Shouldn't Just Be For Teenage Girls Binge Drinking Malibu Rum.
Today I'm participating in a global protest against two proposed American laws by blacking out my blog.
Written under the guise of stopping piracy, the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act are really attempts by large corporations to censor free speech. These bills will curtail freedom of expression and stop innovation, creativity and commerce -- not just in America, but everywhere.
Help STOP SOPA.
If you are an American, write letters to your elected representatives voicing your disgust with these bills. If you're not American -- there isn't a whole lot you can do. Just sit back and enjoy the internet before the American government ruins it.
Twas fun while it lasted.
