I just wanted to mention that tomorrow (Jan. 18) this blog will be participating in the anti-PIPA blackout. As a liberty-minded individual, I am often disturbed by the dangerously invasive legislation passed by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Unfortunately, there is usually not much I can do about it. Thankfully, there are occasionally some viable grass-roots protest efforts, and the pending PIPA legislation has garnered such opposition.
I won’t bother writing extensively about this since there is already a wealth of information available. Suffice it to say that I agree with those who are of the opinion that PIPA/SOPA represent a legitimate threat to internet freedom. By adding my blog to the blackout, I hope to lend my voice (as minor as it may be) to support their cause.
