    Sounds redundant, but... boycott the E3! Don't watch it when it comes up. For every article, journal, or blog that talks about E3, throw a snippet criticizing the ESA for supporting SOPA/PIPA. For those who are thinking about attending E3, forget it. Drive it hard so that when the E3 comes up, their revenue drops.
    Good idea, but it only works if people are organized, which only works if they care. Megaupload was taken down today, and people will care, but not enough. That's why I think SOPA/PIPA have to pass. Outrage is a complicated feeling but powerful.

    Megaupload was taken down because it's violating existing law, which is just fine with me. Governments already have the tools they need to police piracy.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Apparently, the Federal government shut down Megaupload and indicted a bunch of the executives from that site.

    This is all very good news. Finally something is being done about this pesky, thieving, freeloading thing they call the internet.

    More accountability is a good thing imo.

    There goes your answer, I think. While not the type I was thinking of, it works.

    Really? I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
