I know I am a little late on this, but: today (Wednesday) is a day when Websites everywhere are protesting SOPA and PIPA, two very bad proposed laws that would do bad things to the Internet. By “bad things” I mean “breaking the basic infrastructure of the Internet, and taking away the due process rights of Web site owners, in an attempt to stop piracy, and also those attempts to stop piracy won’t work.” If you want a silly cartoon explanation of the issues, check out today’s The Oatmeal. If you want a more serious explanation, just head on over (today only) to Wikipedia, which has blacked itself out for the day in protest, and also offers you a method to contact your Senators and Representatives (assuming you live in the U.S.). Anyway, do those things!
