SOPA/PIPA

January 19, 2012

Okay, so, you’re probably wondering what the big stink about soap was yesterday.  Or perhaps you’re wondering what Spanish soup has to do with the internet. Clay Shirky of TED delivers a pretty fantastic explanation in the video below.  The issue here isn’t the bill itself; the issue is the vagueness of how it is to be enforced, the snowball of restriction that will follow in its wake, and, ultimately, the end of sharing ideas globally with any sort of freedom or ease.

Watch the video.

E-mail your congressional representative.

 

Now watch this.  It’s for fun.
