There are few things in this world I would get beaten in the streets for. You never see a people really stand up to their government without seeing people getting beaten in the streets (we saw some of that late last year). The internet is one of those things.
I'm not going to tell you what's so cool about this internet thing, but I will tell you what's not so cool: people trying to take it freedoms away from it. SOPA and PIPA have been all over the nets lately, but we know about them because we care about these things. It's time to show the people who don't live on hacker news what they have to be worried about.
I'm taking down all my personal sites on 1/18 along with sites like Reddit and ICanHasCheezburger. I will be replacing the index with this. I hope you will consider joining me, you can add your site to the github here: https://github.com/SaraJo/SOPA-PIPA-Protest-Page, or reach out to me (via comment or email) and I will add it for you.
Let's save the internet!
