What does a Bill like PIPA/SOPA mean to You and Me? TED Talks

via Beth Kanter -

 

At the TED offices, Clay Shirky delivers a proper manifesto -- a call to defend our freedom to create, discuss, link and share, rather than passively consume.

 

This is a compelling story that effects all of us who are creating and sharing on the web. It's 15 minutes that are definitely worthy of your time.

 

Here is more information Beth uncovered after doing research on this topic today. Good work Beth!

 

From Beth Kanter:

 

 Thanks Jan. I spent a lot of time in the last 24 hours watching this Internet protest and finding resources that would explain the bill and why it is important. I also wanted an excuse to play with pinterest - http://pinterest.com/kanter/sopa-resources/ - and this was one of the better presentations.

 

There are also a few infographics - with this one being one of the better ones I found: http://pinterest.com/pin/186055028325468332/ and this blog post from Global Voices published on the Witness blog: http://blog.witness.org/2012/01/sopa-blackout-strike/ --

 

I enjoyed watching the creativity ... If you look through examples, you can see the Internet-based companies that rallied behind the free speech protest and those that supported it, but not really with passion: http://pinterest.com/pin/186055028325474953/"

I put all the information you gave me here in the piece for everyone to see. We all need to be up on these issues and take action. Thanks for doing this research, the video is excellent and the other links are worthy of everyone's time as well. Great work Beth!
