I rarely talk about my politics online. Even though I am very interested politics and I pay close attention to what is going on not only in the United States but in other parts of the world, I just find that talking about politics online is pretty useless.
However, this is something that I feel has compelled me to act. SOPA and PIPA are bills that are about to be voted on in the United States Congress right now. If either of these bills are allowed to pass they will be detrimental to the freedom that has allowed the internet to grow and develop into the global marketplace that it is today.
The internet is ours. Don’t let lobbyists in Congress take it from us. Contact your representatives in both the House and the Senate, and tell them to stop SOPA and PIPA.
In protest, GeekGirl World will be shutting down for January 18th beginning at 1 AM PST and ending at 10 PM PST. This is a lot for a small site like us, but I want to add our voice to the growing large chorus that is saying NO!
