Stop SOPA!

Tomorrow, this site will be participating in the Stop SOPA protest. When you come to the site tomorrow between 8am and 8pm EST, you will see a splash screen in protest of SOPA with information on how to take action. You will be able to continue to the site, and if I have configured things correctly, you should only see the splash screen the first time you visit. You can preview what this will look like here.

You know those dystopian futures where books are burned, libraries are censored and people have to be careful about what they say? Think it’s just science fiction? Think again. Tomorrow, with many sites on the Internet going “dark,” we’ll all get a preview of a dystopian future we must avoid.

Just a heads-up to folks who visit tomorrow and are thrown off by the splash screen.
