Attention webizens… today is the launch that the Internet Defense League. In their own words: “When the internet’s in danger and we need millions of people to act, the League will ask its members to broadcast an action. (Say, a prominent message asking everyone to call their elected leaders.) With the combined reach of our websites and social networks, we can be massively more effective than any one organization.”
Last week, the internet spoke out against the SOPA and PIPA legislation in Congress. The result was that both bills were shelved for the time being. But since then, something new has popped up on the techie radar.
