Shhh, it’s Privacy Day!

So today I’m staying quiet on Twitter to protest their recently stated intentions to comply with censorship laws in different countries. Other Twitter users are boycotting the service today, too, under the #twitterblackout and #j28 hashtags.

Ironically, this means that I’m also updating my blog for the first time since Xmas (!) in order to post a link to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s International Privacy Day’s address: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/01/right-anonymity-matter-privacy

It’s a piece to remind us all that the fight for freedom of information, and security of privacy, isn’t done with the SOPA and PIPA blackouts. I urge you to read it, and to consider how you want the internet to look in the future.
