Yesterday you may have noticed sites like Google, Craigslist and Mozilla participating in the internet “blackout” to protest the federal government’s SOPA act which would give the government control of the internet. Since the internet is now the last source of uncensored information, I felt it was important for me to participate. I am just curious if anyone else boycotted the internet yesterday.

I didn’t boycott the internet, but I blacked out my pictures on facebook and shared a few links about SOPA and PIPA.

No. My feelings about it can pretty much be summed up in this article:

No, I didn’t see how doing so would help. Some websites did a good job, but others annoyed me a little bit. They had information about signing a petition that required a zip code or contact your congressman and nothing that was even possible for me to do, yet I had to put up with the website being that way. Believe it or not, not everyone has a zipcode or a congressman!

I didn’t boycott the internet, but I did send emails to my Congress representatives.

Not really. I’m sure the people that did wouldn’t make a huge impact anyways. Just like when people try to boycott gas stations.
