  1. There's a petition for those of us outside the US -- we saw it on Sparkle's blog and added our email address.

    We're not posting today, but we've added a banner anyway.

    Pretty scary-sounding stuff, really.

  16. An analysis in the information technology magazine eWeek stated, "The language of SOPA is so broad, the rules so unconnected to the reality of Internet technology and the penalties so disconnected from the alleged crimes that this bill could effectively kill e-commerce or even normal Internet use.
