Silence = Protest


I am joining Wikipedia in the internet blackout to protest the SOPA/PIPA laws that will be discussed by both Congress and the Senate. Please take a moment to contact your representatives about their position on these proposed laws. As Wikipedia has said, "In a post SOPA/PIPA world, Wikipedia --and many other useful informational sites-- cannot survive in a world where politicians regulate the Internet based on the influence of big money in Washington. It represents a framework for future restrictions and suppression. Congress says it's trying to protect the rights of copyright owners, but the "cure" that SOPA and PIPA represent is much more destructive than the disease they are trying to fix."
