The Great American Blackout: It’s not over yet

  1. Yay! You’re back up! I kept clicking on your Cat LOL email link and going to your black out, so I must have resaved your email as new half a dozen times.

    I took many screen shots… but missed Wired. How could I missed going to that site??? idgit!

    1. How nice to hear I was missed! Amazingly, despite being blacked out, Pied Type got a huge (for me, anyway) number of hits yesterday, second only to the day before and my two biggest days ever.

      I’d hoped maybe that LOLcats link would show in your email and you could reach it without coming to the blog. Didn’t mean to be a tease.

  2. Have you seen the list of companies that do support SOPA/PIPA? It’s huge! I’m a little miffed because my internet company which well is the only one here so I have no other choice in the matter supports it. Then of course there’s Nike, that just pisses me off. I dunno, after Megaload went down yesterday and after watching the debate last night; this country is pretty much up shits creek. Can you tell I’m in a negative mood from politics?

    I will say though that I am absolutely proud of what occurred; how so many of us are standing up to this and saying this isn’t how it needs to be.

    1. Yes, I saw the list weeks ago and it may have grown in response to all the public protest. I knew from the beginning it would be an uphill battle against them, but I (we) couldn’t not try. It’s just not right for money and influence alone to dictate the law in this country.

  3. I’m writing an essay about SOPA and PIPA. I went looking for blackout images, and found the awesome wikiapedia one. It is amazing to be part of something so big and huge. We made history January 18th. Even if those 7000 sites die tomorrow, or the 160 million people who saw the banner, never do anything about SOPA, we made history.
    It’s awesome. 🙂

... and that's my two cents
