The Dark Side of the Internet
You’ll find lots of websites’ participated in the 18th January Blackout Day in protest of SOPA/PIPA. If you still do not know what they are, then I don’t know what to tell you.
to how these websites looked like. Someone obviously asked this question,and someone put up loads of printscreens. Its nice to see the internet so united.
Update- There’s two wonderful articles by Marco Arment, and MG Seigler’s commentary on his article. Yes, I read parislemon.com frequently. He made a superb point.
“Dodd vacated his U.S. Senate seat on January 3, 2011. In a year, he’ll be able lobby all he wants. He’ll be able to directly buy the support of all his former colleagues. He spent 36 years in Washington as both a Senator and Congressman. You think that doesn’t matter? He’s going to be the best lobbyist ever. Which is exactly why the MPAA picked him. “
This is scary,and highly unsettling. Its an allout war,one which we never prepared for whilist our enemies(the studios) have been sharpening their swords for,since long.
Also, loved how Marco quantified every entertainment industry consumer - ” They see us as stupid eyeballs with wallets.” from their point of view.
