Tomorrow, January 18, 2012, my blog will go dark. This action is being taken to express opposition to the pending SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (PROTECT IP) legislation. These acts fundamentally censor the internet. The bills also threaten the basic functionality of the net as we know it. You may encounter similar black outs on Google and other web sites you visit on Wednesday. Normally, an apology for an interruption of service would be in order. In this case, however, I'm offering none. This threat to freedom of speech and expression is far more important to oppose, whatever means are required. Feel free to revisit on Thursday, January 19.
