I am against the legislation being considered in the United States known as SOPA in the House and PIPA in the Senate. These two bills, in the guise of fighting piracy, threaten the openness of the internet and potentially allow for censorship. On January 18 I will be joining the website blackout, along with Reddit, Wikipedia, and many others to protest these bills. I apologize to readers from outside the U.S. The potential impacts of these bills will impact us all. Learn more and take action.
