Nuke the Net: How to Get the Mainstream Talking About the Dangers of SOPA - Alex Fitzpatrick

Nuke the Net: How to Get the Mainstream Talking About the Dangers of SOPA - Alex Fitzpatrick | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   SOPA is not the mainstream issue we may think it is, yet its passing would affect even casual Internet users. There's one way to bring it to the national stage: black out the biggest 3 sites on the web.

   Facebook, Google and Wikipedia. You’re the Big Three in this fight. You’ve already publicly affirmed your opposition to SOPA. Now it’s time to really be a part of the fight.

   Go dark. Shut down your sites. Leave a message about SOPA/PIPA, link out to more information and let people know what they can do to fight the bills.
