In my other life, I’m a self-employed website developer. That means that I’m one of the luckiest people I know. I get to live my dream, working from home while I help people make their dreams come true, because of the Internet. Proposed laws threaten our ability to make a living on the Internet, express ourselves on the Internet, do research on the Internet and touch other people’s lives via the Internet.
Despite my reluctance to mix bread making and politics, on January 18th I’m blacking out this site in protest of the Internet censorship bills, SOPA & PIPA. You can watch a video on the topic and/or learn more at the protest site.
