Joining the Blackout

If you’ve been to google today, you will notice their logo is blacked out. Today, I am joining the “Blackout Movement” in protest of SOPA and PIPA, the new censorship laws. If you click on the title of this post (Joining the Blackout), at the bottom you will see “share buttons”. Share the word through twitter, facebook, or if you have a wordpress, there is a “press this” button where you can link to this post. Be pro-active! 🙂

‘While I support their goal of reducing copyright infringement (which I don’t believe these acts would accomplish), I am shocked that our lawmakers would contemplate such measures that would put us on a par with the most oppressive nations in the world,’ said Sergey Brin, one of the co-founders of Google, in a December post on Google+” (abcNEWS).
