SOPA and PIPA are not good. I really hope that isn’t news to you. Today I am supporting efforts to bring these bills to an end and I want to encourage all my readers to do so as well. We are talking about some rather non-impressive numbers, but the power of compound interest demonstrates how small growth can effect big change. If I can convince even 10% of you to do something, and each of you effects a similar number of people who also reach …. it doesn’t take any time at all before we bring SOPA and PIPA to an end. A super simple thing everyone, even people who aren’t American citizens, can do is install the SOPA Blackout plugin on their site. It just sets up an onsite redirect and informs your visitors during the blackout dates (which you can configure) about the danger of SOPA and what they can do. Then provides a link back to what they were trying to view in the first place and leaves them be for the remainder of the browsing session. Worried about how that will look? Click through to my site on January 18th. You can also create your own custom page and configure a few other simple options. What are you waiting for? Go get the SOPA Blackout Plugin and put it on all your sites.
