Supporting the Free and Open Web

This site will go dark tomorrow (18th January 2012) as part of the worldwide protest against the proposed US Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA – currently shelved).

These are misconceived and threatening to the free and open operation of the Internet – and they have far-reaching implications that go far beyond the shores of the United States (got to love asymmetric extradition…). They need to be stopped.
