Hackers/Founders DC Message Board › Emergency SOPA Meetup

Emergency SOPA Meetup

Rusty K.
Group Organizer
Alexandria, VA

This is important:

You have probably heard of SOPA and PIPA by now. You are also probably aware of the online protests planned for this Wednesday, January 18th in the form of "blackouts" by Reddit, Minecraft, the Cheezburger network, and many other websites. What you may not know is that there physical SOPA protests planned on the same date in cities across the United States, including Washington, DC.

The DC Tech meetup group is coordinating the SOPA protest in DC, this Wednesday from 10am to 12pm. If you make your living on the internet, I urge you to think about the issue, get involved, and make yourself heard. For details and to RSVP, see this page:­

If you aren't familiar with SOPA, then you owe it to yourself to get educated. Here are some good places to start:
