We Didn't Order That!: The Stop Online Piracy Act
In case you've been living in a cave for the past several months (tell me -- on a scale from 1 to 10 how robot-proof is it?), Congress is trying to push some legislation through the system THAT WILL CHANGE THE FACE OF INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT. And not in a good way like to a Brad Pitt or George Clooney face, in a bad way like to Sloth from Goonies. No bueno! Gizmodo has a really nice layman's terms article explaining the bill and its effects HERE, which is definitely worth a read if you're not familiar with WTF is going on. Then, after you're filled with enough rage at the stodgy old gasbags pushing this shit, you can go HERE, HERE or HERE to write your congressperson and tell them you didn't elect them to side with their ball-tickling cohorts in big business. But don't say it like that. Try to say it more eloquently. Oooooooor just use one of the form-factor emails. However you do it, please, LET YOUR INTERNET-LOVING VOICE BE HEARD. This is my livelihood we're talking about!
