Another day, another industry with a failed business model wants to break the internet to survive. Yawn.
Lots of sites are going black today to protest plans for American internet censorship under SOPA and PIPA.
We’re going to respond with mocking. This legislative silliness will continue until the final nail is banged into the coffin of antiquated content distribution models. It’s so tired, it’s like a recycled yo mama joke.
If you’re in the US, and don’t like the proposed legislation, please call or write your representative. If you’re outside the US, you can still contact the US State Department. Remember to mention PIPA too. SOPA has gotten a lot of blow back, but PIPA seems to still be on track.
If you own internet domains, be sure to reward good behavior.
