You’ve no doubt seen the news about a number of websites that are “going dark” today in protest against the SOPA and PIPA bills working their way through congress. Google has a good summary, as do a number of other places.
I don’t have anything new to add, except the change in background in support. These bills are poorly written and could cripple the internet. Make sure you let your Senators and Representative in Congress know that they should vote against these measures.
