The basic functions of the internet are under threat with proposed “SOPA/PIPA” legislation, which will change all our lives if it passes.  Wikipedia and other sites are blacked out today in protest–if you run into any of these blackout sites in the course of your day’s use of the internet, imagine what it would be like if they weren’t coming back tomorrow…  Emmie Mears explains–please take a minute to read her post and find out how this affects all of us, and what you can do!
