happy internet freedom day.

i don't know how "free" it really is, considering certain regime restrictions and crackdowns, and i am anything but happy at this point, but i guess it's worth celebrating that SOPA, PIPA (and ACTA) didn't pass, and that we threw a small wrench into the attempts by greedy and authoritarian scum to destroy the internet.

Every country has put up walls. Companies squelching redistribution and spreading the rhetoric that paid content is the only viable option. Entire blogs self-censored out of fear the wrong eyes might read them. It's been over a decade since the dot-com boom and the rise of user content, but there seems to be less content than ever before.
