Quick Update

First thing's first: I will go back to reviewing tomorrow.

Second: You' probably heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect Internet Protocol Act (PIPA.) When you see the names, you would at first think "Oh, they're trying to stop people from downloading music and streaming movies!" This is bigger than that. Let's say, I put a picture from a movie on my blog. Or someone posts a link to a streaming site. In short: you could lose this (and other) blogs is these bills are passed.

If SOPA and/or PIPA pass, it will give the federal government complete control over internet content. In short: they will have the power to censor and control the internet. Do what you can to contact your representatives to try and prevent these bills from passing. If not, and they do pass, then the internet as you know it will be as good as dead. Do you want that? Of course you don't, so do something. It's not just your internet that's in danger-it's everyone's.
