Time for something that has absolutely nothing to do with my children. Except for, you know, their future.
As one of the many who use the internet daily, I’m among those of the mind that this SOPA nonsense needs to be stopped because it would be the undoing of all that the internet is… Basically giving law enforcement, government and companies the right to shut down websites as they please without any sort of due process. Money is changing hands to make this happen. Lobbyists are everywhere and companies are paying off whoever they can to get this through. Please take a second to get educated on the matter if you have no idea what I’m referring to:
- How SOPA would affect you (CNET)
- Wikipedia: SOPA Please note that in protest of SOPA, Wikipedia, in addition to Reddit, BoingBoing and others, is shutting down communications January 18. The Wikipedia info page about SOPA is the only page on the English section of the site viewable for more than two seconds before it redirects to their message page.
- Google Search: SOPA for news, opinions and other finds across the web
Google has also launched a petition to show the disdain the internet community has for the bill. Please give it a quick sign, it only takes a few seconds… Google: Take Action
And then contact your senators and representatives to ask them to please vote NO on SOPA. Here are a few handy contact links for my readers in Minnesota and North Dakota:
Please spread the word- Maybe if enough people get mad and get loud about it this bill will go down in flames before it gets a chance to
destroy the internet.
