video describing PIPA and SOPA. and not to sounds like a broken record, but Vimeo the site this video comes from is one of the high risk sites from decommission should these bills pass.
As a Canadian, it’s easy for me to simply bypass these posts and ignore them. Of course, wikipedia isn’t working for me today either (well, it is on my mobile device, but not laptop).
It’s also easy for me to say “well, Canada is better than the USA” but it’s not true. There are so many policies passed that disrespect the privacy of others. (Like the policy that says women must unveil their faces when attending their citizenship event…)
One thing I’m curious about is how Canadian and other non-American users will be effected by these laws. Of course, many of my favourite Tumblroos will disappear, but will the sites disappear also? Will my privacy be at risk also?
I have no idea.
Joel Plaskkett - You’re Mine
I love Joel Plaskett. For serious. This new project of his too is pure awesome so far. The band is recording a new song each week and then releasing them each Tuesday
for… six weeks I think (?)from Jan 10-March 13. This is the first tune from the studios.
This is amazing. Seriously.
The fact that he is producing and releasing the song, week by week is wonderful. They were talking about it on CBC Radio 2 and how this is how it used to be.
I’m so excited. He’s a brilliant man.

…Did this person seriously take a photograph of a computer screen?
Are there still people out there who are unfamiliar with the Print Screen function?
Perhaps they thought that photographic evidence would look more legitimate, given that it’s trivial to edit a screenshot.
Additionally, the built-in Windows screenshot function doesn’t capture the mouse pointer, and also occasionally fails to capture certain other screen elements (such as various movie-codec windows, and form controls that trigger actions based on keypresses).
….Why do people think we’re a joke?
WHY ARE WE ALIENS?
