I’m going to boycott the internet for 24 hours to join the SOPA Blackout. Internet censorship even if it is under the guise of helping the music and film industry fight piracy is one step too close to Communism for me. If I wanted to be a Commie I would be living in North Korea right now helping to embalm Kim Jong-il.
Fight the man.
Fight the power.
Fight the corporations trying to control everything we do. Otherwise whenever we go online there will be so many blocked, blacked out sites we will feel like we are banging our heads against a brick wall.
If you want to learn more about SOPA and the blackout here are some great links:
from The Verge
from The Huffington Post
from ABC News
for and against the protest on BBC News
And if you think it could never happen in the land Down Under, we already have an internet filter
See you on the other side….
