This quick video summarizes all the reasons why I believe we all need to speak up against PROTECT IP Act (PIPA).
As I said in a Twitter post earlier this morning, I believe companies and individuals have the right to protect their intellectual property. We just need to find a way to do it without interfering with the basic foundations of the Internet, and my individual rights to access information.
One of the more memorable quotes from Barack Obama’s Inauguration speech, “America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.”
As 2008 comes to a close I want to everyone a very Happy Holiday and a joyous New Year. This year has brought its share of ups and downs but through it all I am truly grateful for my family, my friends and my life.
Looking forward to meeting and talking with more of you in the weeks and months ahead. Thanks for all your technology tips, funny quotes and creative insight.
The Obama team continues to demonstrate that they recognize the value of the communication and that the internet can be a really powerful channel to help facilitate communication.
Their new website Change.gov publishes news releases, information about the President-elect, Vice President-elect and information about the various individuals Barack Obama has chosen to work with him in the White House. It is also a great place for you to post your ideas to help our country get back on track.
