So as some of you who ventured over to my little bit of the universe may have noticed yesterday, I did eventually manage to get my site blacked out. Once I got to work, it took me all of five minutes. Additionally, I've managed to get back to my original template without tearing a hole in the time-space continuum, so that's cool.
I'd say the blackout yesterday was fairly successful, and it was heartening as the day went on to see how many sites were, if not participating, at least drawing attention to the issue and and saying "Hey, this is bullshit."
The fight is not over yet. There's still the vote to be had on January 24th, so I urge you, if you are in the U.S. to write your congressman. You can follow the link I've put in the top right-hand corner, and that will stay there until the vote. If you're outside of the U.S. then be sure to familiarize yourself with any similar legislation that may be in the works.
NOW Toronto has a link with some of the legislation in the works for Canada. Check it out here.
