Well, that video on Khan Academy was much better than my post. Thanks for sharing it. I have already shared it on Facebook. The more people know about what is going on, the better.

I did like the technology CEOs on my discussion link who said that they thought internet piracy laws are needed; they just need to have the technology guys help write the law -- not lobbyists.

Have you posted this to PA? I think it is worth sharing on all of the fool boards. If I understand it correctly, this whole site could be shut down if they pass a bill anything like this. I think SOPA/PIPA is dead, but who is to say they won't sneak a new bill in sometime later that is very similar? America saw the end of important protections in banking (set up during the 1930s) in 1999 while the country was caught up in impeachment. Look where we are today because of that. People can be oblivious. In fact, now that I think about it, if something like SOPA happens we will be even more oblivious because the internet is how people have become aware. The internet really is powerful--that is why places like China and N Korea control it.
