Stop Online Privacy Act

Apparently the only thing that can get bi-partisan agreement right now is destroying the internet. The hearings in the congress were basically stacked with big media executives, with the only vaguely technical person being a lawyer (not an engineer) from Google.

The creators of the internet have signed an open letter about how damaging this could be.

Call your congressman, get this thing stopped. Use some of those extra cell phone minutes, orĀ unlimitedĀ long distance, to keep the internet a place where new ideas can incubate, instead of being stomped out by big media companies.
