Say NO to SOPA

Reposting a great blog post from Shreve Stockton, photographer and blogger at The Daily Coyote:

A lot of sites are going dark today in protest of SOPA and PIPA.

The Daily Coyote as we know it would not exist if SOPA had been in effect five years ago. The Daily Coyote book, which so many of you have loved, would never have been written under SOPA.

What do I mean? How can I make these declarations? Easy. Because I still so vividly remember those strange days in late 2007 when my blog went from obscurity to its opposite overnight. Dooce linked to The Daily Coyote with one picture and a blurb. Then Reddit, Digg, Notcot, and more. My editor-to-be at Simon & Schuster heard about The Daily Coyote at a dinner party in New York
and emailed me the next day with a book offer.

This would not happen under SOPA.  This would be illegal under SOPA.

If you’re glad you found Charlie ~ and Eli and Daisy and the rest of the crew ~ please add your voice to those in opposition of SOPA and PIPA. Learn more HERE. Act HERE.
