Update 18/01: Massive action by some of the web’s heavy weights today (and many others). Help them, support them. They fighting for your rights. This affects everyone, not just the folks in the US.

In support of stopping this legislation, this article is my site’s home page focus for the day.
This edition of “Doing your bit” is short and sweet… but very important.
Congress is about to pass internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House – to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

Folks, you need to be aware of this and take action, it affects EVERYONE. Don’t be naive, it will negatively affect you if this is allowed to happen.
