Congress declares war on the internet, via the Stop Online Piracy Act, at the behest of Hollywood lobbyists. This legislation has the potential to dramatically alter the freedom and openness of the internet around the world, allowing the government and those connected to it to shut down any website they deem offensive with no hearing whatsoever. It is like we are rushing to adopt the authoritarianism of China for the internet as quickly as possible. These tools in Washington have no idea they are seeking to regulate one of the great drivers of creativity and jobs in the modern era. Absolutely stunning. Call your Congressman today, there is no excuse not to.

UPDATE: And what do you know, all the major sponsors in Congress have received hundreds of thousands in donations from entertainment industry companies.
