Important! Please Read....

Please Join the Blackout


Join The New Zealand Internet Blackout to protest against the Guilt Upon Accusation law 'Section 92A' that calls for internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny. This is due to come into effect on February 28th unless immediate action is taken by the National Party.

Join thousands of New Zealanders already against this law by blacking out your Facebook photo, your websites, your Myspace pages, your Twitter account, in protest against this unjust new law that may come into effect on February 28.

Just use this image (Right-click, Save-As) with the text:

(your name) is blacked out: Stand up against "Guilt Upon Accusation" for New Zealand http://creativefreedom.org.nz/blackout.html

Cheers. It's appreciated. WTF is going on? First England doesn't want you to take pictures of their police, then Diane Fienstein tries to gut net neutrality, and now this? Geez...

Right-wing reactionaries at work, I guess. China is starting to arrest people who publish "inappropriate" material. Who knows what that means there. I believe they consider political dissent to be pornography.

Whenever I check my statcounter and see someone stopping by from China I want to send them a "Congratulations/Thank You" email. Just for jumping off of China's state run interweb.

You and me both! At least I have a bit of support being on Twitter where half the people I talk to have lil black squares, but I was thinking the same thing this AM.
