I have never done one of these before, but I would not argue the results.

Disenchanting Illusions, chapter 11

AN: Thanks to all of you for being patient for this update and for your reviews on the last chapter. Sorry for the long wait. Hopefully it was worth it.

Chapter 11Collapse )
SOPA and PIPA have been slammed for the serious threat they hold to the integrity of the internet because the few are paying to influence the law makers.  Well, now there is ACTA.  Take a look at this video to see another threat to individual freedoms.

Joining the Craze

I don't know what most of these are, but the quiz was kind of weird.

Disenchanting Illusions, chapter ten

AN: Merry (belated) Christmas and Happy New Year! I wanted to get this out as a present but thought you guys would want a full chapter update instead of a rushed partial. (The partial would have only been 2000+ words.) Thank you so much for the reviews and input for the last chapter! Also, I hate the beginning of this by the way. Sorry if it sounds wrong.

Another Protect IP awareness message

Check out the new video by Kirby Ferguson about Protect IP.  He has a wonderful series he is producing called Everything is a Remix if you enjoy this video.

Check out this video and the petition in his comments!

Congress wants to take away your internet.

Alert and spreading the word!

Originally posted by dynamicsymmetryat Congress wants to take away your internet.
Folks, I know you're tired of me yelling at you, but you should be aware that there's a hearing this morning being held by the US House Judiciary Committee on a "copyright" bill that will essentially break the entire internet.

You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.

From the link above:

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.

It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).

This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.

Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.
