Y'all know I was planning an MLK post for today. However, instead I'm posting in support of the many sites (e.g., Wikipedia) that are shut down today. Google is still up but its name is blacked out in support of the protest of SOPA and PIPA and y'all can learn more and sign a petition here. Firefox is also on board and y'all can read more here. These bills are about greed, intellectual freedom, intrusive government and limiting web access. Sites like Wikipedia and YouTube would be decimated and many, many jobs (Hello? Does this smack of corporate greed?) would be lost. You or I could be sued or fined or even imprisoned for borrowing a video or music or whatever from any site.
This is about greed, my friends and I urge y'all to check out the links and sign the petitions.
