It’s no longer OK to NOT know how the Internet Works

So the SOPA bill has been dropped, the internet is free and a billion people saw the message! That’s one seventh of the people on earth. Three hundred thousand people sent emails protesting the bill, two hundred thousand people tweeted about #SOPA and millions more got their message across in other creative ways, like this protester.
It’s clear that when people come together stuff gets done, and the internet is the best forum for we have for this!
We’ve done something very clever, instead of allow a Orwellian nightmare to come to pass we’ve turned the cameras around. We need to keep scrutinising, keep discussing and keep reminding government that our words have as many consequences as theirs.
