So you've probably noticed that Google, Wikipedia, Craigslist and many others are protesting against SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act). I know quite a few bloggers are also shutting down their blogs in protest as well. I won't be doing that (mostly because I don't know how. Ahem.) but I did want to make sure I posted some info on it.
I am not an expert on what is happening, but I encourage you to look it up, check it out and do something about it. What I do know is that this could affect bloggers like myself in a very negative way. It could affect all of us and the way we use the internet. I know that I risk people stealing my ideas, my recipes and my content in general by posting it on the internet for all to see. But stopping piracy and full on censorship are very different things.
