I have been so busy trying to get a few things out of the way did not set up my site to black out today. Previously we had shared and avatar photoshop kit (Censored and Stop SOPA MOTHA Foka) so you could support the Anti-Sopa & Anti-Pipa movement. We also included an brief explanation on what SOPA is. This morning I caught this tweet by fellow dad blogger extraordinaire @cc_chapman on the great job TheOatmeal.com did on sending a message with a moving image (.gif) and some great humor.
I think many others have blacked out there sites but we also support SOPA by creating awareness. I could not agree more with @cc_chapman on how the creative, fun, and informative animated gif above should definitely win the award for best idea on blacking out a site.
I guess the fact that I am based in Puerto Rico and although we are a U.S. Territory and/or Colony we don’t have any representation in congress so all I can do is create awareness for those that can actually talk to their congress representatives (Although SOPA will affect all of us).
Want to help in the fight against SOPA / PIPA? First, go learn about the bills. After that go contact your elected officials. Wikipedia has a handy-dandy page set up which allows you to locate your state representative. (yes I did Copy paste this from TheOatmeal.com)
Do your support SOPA?
