I’m not the “activist” type…
But following the ongoing SOPA and PIPA proposed legislation has me inspired to do my part.
Many strong internet companies are against these bills, and many of them are taking action up to and including blacking out their website for a day.
This is a viral protest, and many sites are taking part in this campaign. Certainly, ericvb.com and its 50 visits per day are merely a drop in an olympic size swimming pool – but we are all swimming in that pool.
Therefore, tomorrow I will be using this handy WordPress plugin to black out my site as well and stand at arms with Wikipedia, reddit, etc.
