A Temporary Loss of Freedom

On my way home, I overheard two old ladies, walking their dog in the park, talking about how their hard drives are filled up and they now have to delete movies to create some free space. It's a strange thing to encounter, as this isn't exactly a well known topic for old ladies.

This shows us though, that everyone in the world who's got a computer and access to the internet, embraces it fully and makes use of it in so many different ways. And if even old ladies are hooked on the internet, it has become a full social platform, a fundamental human network that inspires creativity and freedom of speech.

Letting this all be controlled by huge media companies will put all of our futures at risk. So if there's any time to make your voices heard, it sure is now. There are protests lined up in Paris and Brussels for tomorrow (28 jan), if that's too soon for you, I've also heard about a possible global protest on Feb 15th. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for it! Oh, and if you've not already signed the Anti-ACTA petition, please go here:

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. ~ V
