You may have noticed that many websites are going black today to protest the bills that are being considered in Congress right now. SOPA and PIPA would change the internet and many bloggers, like myself, could face criminal charges under these awful bills. Even if that worse case doesn't happen, there will be a lot of censorship going on without really stopping piracy, which is the so-called purpose of these bills.
So I'm going silent today on social media today as part of the protest. I don't know how to black out my blog because I'm not very tech savvy, but I'm writing this post in place of actually blacking my blog out.
Wikipedia has blacked out, but they also have a way to find your local representatives. If you really want to make your voice heard on this, please contact your representatives.
