If you’ve visited Wikipedia or Google today, you’ve probably noticed that things look a little different than usual. Many popular websites are holding “blackouts” in protest of current legislation in the U.S. chambers of Congress that would effectively censor the internet.
Just in case you’re looking for more information on the SOPA and PIPA legislation, I want to share my partner’s recent post on the subject. Nate’s blog post “For #SOPA Blackout day: a challenge to make things better” not only describes the issue at hand but recommends an alternative course that we could and should take instead. I highly recommend that you check it out.
Here’s to a censorship-free internet!
