Alexandra Petri in Washington Post: "Stop SOPA" http://j.mp/s7VKVn (Washington Post) "Either the people behind the bill don't realize the horrible possibilities it would leave open, or they're doing it on purpose. I'm not sure which possibility is more frightening. The phrase "a bill that would open up unprecedented tools for online censorship is currently being discussed by a group of middle-aged people who did not grow up with the Internet" has the same chilling effect on me - and most Internet watchers - as the phrase "your child has just been handed to a drunk bear on a tightrope over a pit of molten lava." Our palms begin to sweat. We start dashing off letters to everyone you can think of. And we're right to be terrified." - - - --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren Twitter: https://twitter.com/laurenweinstein Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com
