Several sites, including Wikipedia and Reddit, are blacked out in protest of the SOPA bill, a bill that threatens the way the internet works. Wired has a great write up if you want more info, but essentially, the bill would make site owners responsible for anything posted or linked to on their website as well as giving content owners the ability to take down any infringing website without any sort of due process.
In other words, blogs and aggregator sites that post content from around the web would become a thing of the past as site owners would be incurring too much risk in hosting them.
I’m not blocking out the Scrabbled because, obviously, who gives a shit whether or not this site is available today, but I thought I’d at least leave this here in case anyone was curious why they couldn’t get to the sites they usually hit today.
In other news, I expect today to be super productive. I already finished the multi-image upload process for some gallery software I’m working on.
What’s the deal with that? I have 7 days left as this job and i plan to spend it on the internet, and going to the scrabbled has been a dead end. No links? No fights? No thought provoking articles? WAKE UP SCRABBLED!
Are in the same movie!
Ryan Gosling, the actor from Lars and the Real Doll and The Notebook, decided he was next in line to be a terrible actor/musician. He even recruited a children’s choir to help him!
