Good Morning Fellow Joomla! People,

3. Joomla! 2.5Beta2 released - set for GA January 24, 2012

4. SOPA/PIPA
On Wednesday night, Ernie, a member of the group, came up to me with a post-it note with the words SOPA and PIPA written on it. A couple of other members were around me when this occurred and none of us really had a firm grasp on what these words meant.

Thursday, Mike called me and gave me a summary after some research. He had me visit fightforthefuture.org/pipa. Great, short video on what SOPA and PIPA are about. Last night, I went onto craigslist and on the home page for every city/state on the directory is a blurb about stopping SOPA and PIPA with a link to http://www.craigslist.org/about/SOPA. I thought this page gave an excellent summary about who to contact and how. It also gives a link to information about a blackout against SOPA projected for January 18th. Do with this information what you will. Just wanted to alert you to some goings on in the internet world. Mike has posted a discussion on the meetup.com message board regarding SOPA/PIPA. Please post to the message board for more on SOPA/PIPA.

Have a great day and see you at an upcoming meetup (will be posted soon...)!

:) jenn
