IT'S BLACKOUT DAY
So, congress and the senate have been pushing SOPA and PIPA for the past few months. Well it's finally come down to the wire.
I've been a bit fighter of these two bills over the past few months, and I've been doing a lot to spread the word.
If you could, PLEASE check out and sign these petitions? And check out these sites and read up on what we're facing, and find out what you can do to help us keep the internet censorship free. We've got to let them know that we support a free internet, where information is NOT censored by corporate greed. These bills are NOT just about fighting piracy, they're about the very freedom of our information. If I still had a website, you can bet I'd be joining the others in today's blackout.
Those of you that are also my friends on Facebook, you know I've been spamming the crap out of my wall with this stuff for a few weeks now. (And if you're not my friend on Facebook, why aren't you?!) :P heh I kid.
But really, this is something I feel very strongly about, and I'm not alone in this. These bills would destroy the internet as we know it. They are essentially the equivalent of the internet firewalls that China, Iran and others have.
So please, stand with me, Reddit, Mozilla, Google, Wikipedia, LiveJournal and numerous others against these bills.
Also, if you're into the whole facebook thing, the image at the top of my post can be used as the cover image on your timeline like mine!
Also also, if you're doing the whole twitter thing: 1.) add me! (@Meridon) 2.) change your icon to protest SOPA! http://www.blackoutsopa.org/
