In the pursuit of perfect homebrew, failure still makes beer.

Do your part, and sign the anti-SOPA/PIPA petitions.

 

This may not be the most read beer blog on the web, and it may not be the most informative. But I like it – and I hope you like it too – enough to stand up for it.

Passing bills like SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect our IP Act) into law would be laying the framework for catastrophic censorship and unlawful blackouts of websites like Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and blogs like this one.

Please, do your part and sign the anti-SOPA/PIPA petition here.

If you have time, check out Wikipedia’s blackout page for information on the bills and contact information you can use to contact your senators and representatives.

You can also read the statement from the Electronic Frontier Foundation about the bills and why they would create chaos in the internet environment.
