SOPA and PIPA - Why it Matters to You...
Posted by Steph
Pirates are cool.
Piracy is not.
But let's handle this like adults. Not all "let's shut down the internet as we know it and make it suck." Also known as SOPA and PIPA.
You may have noticed today that some of your fave interwebs sites are all BLACK or TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING. Or, if you are the Oatmeal, you are doing a dang good job of making a good point even better. As the Washington Post stated in their recent article, "This is what happens when you make the internet mad."
Don't piss off the internet.
While I am absolutely 100% totally on board with the Internet Blackout happening today (as are many of my lovely bloggy friends), I am also absolutely 100% totally inept at doing this to my own blog.
Don't judge me.
So since I have no idea how to black out my blog (but do so in spirit), please check out these videos:

And make a stand yourself by contacting your local representative NOW:
I love ya, and as long as the internet world as we know it doesn't fall to pieces, I'll be back tomorrow with more good stuff.
