I have a twitter-swarm of the companies that supported CISPA, should I post them on care2? or post them on here? ... calling to acknowledge the companies and asking them to pull their support of CISPA... anyone have suggestions?

News flash: the Internet exists outside the USA. In fact, there are probably more users outside than in. How much notice will the US government take of what they do?

22 kwietnia to Dzień Ziemi, powinna być akcja chroniąca Ziemię a nie internet.
