Notch (the guy who started Minecraft) has a really good piece on why patents are a bad idea.
Really enjoying this idea, going to try it out I think this weekend, as I’m due for a Star Wars marathon.
It’s a little depressing when I pick up a Lego kit and have to turn it down because of this issue.
EFF highlights some of the largest sites that participated in the SOPA/PIPA blackout.
The idea that we’ll be able to go back in time and make it harder for people to get digital information/media/anything is just wrong.
I’ll also be posting a message to protest and inform people about PIPA and SOPA, though I imagine Wikipedia will have a much larger influence.

One of the geniuses of all time.
