Banners and Cartoons are not going to create the change most internet users want. I know it’s not something I care to waste time on. Instead, I’m gathering links and writing this post. Here’s some things that will actually make a difference.
- Donate to EFF
- Donate to Wikipedia (Wikipedia is down today in protest)
- Stop giving money to companiesthat support SOPA or PIPA
- Talk to people about what’s going on
- Call a representative. A lot.
- Support representatives that oppose this garbage
- Campaign against representatives that support SOPA and PIPA
As I mentioned in this morning’s post, I’m not a massive fan of today’s blackout protests. Instead I tend to lean towards speaking out and offering financial support when an issue matters to me. If SOPA and PIPA really matter to you, take some of the steps Gabe suggests. Speak out with both your actions and your wallet.
Also be sure to visit Macdrifter.com today. Instead of going dark, he is shining a light on those who support this nonsense.
