Stop SOPA

I have a kick-ass post on letting go and how difficult and necessary it is.  But you'll note I'm not posted it today.

That's because I'm participating in the Stop SOPA strike.

I'm not technically advanced enough to figure out how to black out my site, but this way you get the benefit of learning more about it. (And if you find sites blacked out in your travels around the web, this is why.)

Information from the Stop SOPA Strike page:

On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House – to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit's lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day.

Some of the many internet guys joining this strike:

Google

WordPress

Wikipedia

Mozilla

Moveon.org

And many more.

Won't you join?  Don't you want a free, uncensored internet?  I know I do.  Visit the SOPA Strike page to find out more.

Charlotte, I’m looking forward to your kick-ass post (sounds like one that I need about now)! I’ll be watching for it.

I couldn’t figure out how to do the black-out thing on Typepad either, but I’m SO with you on the Stop SOPA. Waving.

Yes, I am with you. I’ll go to the page and do what I can.

Oh God, now I hope it really is kick ass! I’m glad I’m not the only one who couldn’t figure out how to do black it out (Typepad does have its quirks)but I do think this serves the purpose well, we get to talk about it.

Thanks, J.D.! For those with Twitter accounts, you can get the Stop Sopa avatar which is quite fetching. 🙂
