MotD: Protesting SOPA | PIPA
By @Creator MightyE
Those of you who use the site default appearance will have noticed the site has gone dark today. This is to raise awareness of SOPA|PIPA, two bills going through US congress which are designed to end the free and open Internet.
People who know more about these things than me have spoken about them at detail. See <a href="https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/01/how-pipa-and-sopa-violate-white-house-principles-supporting-free-speech">the EFF's writeup</a>, or Wikipedia's <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act">SOPA</a> or <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROTECT_IP_Act">PIPA</a> articles (still available through Wikipedia's blackout today).
