Adventures in Internet Censorship

If you visited yesterday, you will have noticed that access to the site was blocked. The Internet is facing a frankly ridiculous threat to its fundamental inner workings in the form of the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP act, and many Internet sites shut down yesterday in protest. If these acts pass, blogs like this one could be shut down simply because a single comment left by a user links to something a corporation thinks it owns.

While the strike day is over, these bills are still a threat to the Internet. I know it's a nerdy issue, but please visit and read about it.
