"Imagine a World without free knowledge".
First, I'd like to say that I am sorry for not uploading anything last week or this week. I'm still surprised that is Wednesday. I was feeling under the weather. I had Rhinorrhea for some dumb reason too.
Anyways, this SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act; Internet Piracy) business has gotten serious, so I'm just taking time to reflect and ramble.
My icon is more of a thoughtful or "hmm?" face rather than angry.
Ask yourself, are you committing piracy?
Today, on my Wiki, in response to the protest, I wanted to type why I think Wikia can be useful
. I was an amateur editor for Wikipedia and wanted to learn how to use the editing system. Because of that, BOOM, made my own database. It first started off as as experiment on PBworks, but it was difficult to work with so I used Wikia.
Today, I also want to honorably mention the LJ comm stop_plagiarism
, where the members commit themselves to fighting piracy. It is backed with facts and I appreciate the hard work. Surprises how people just indiscriminately copies from another.
Which makes me think: Would parodies on youtube fall into the piracy category?
I had more to say but I forgot. Again, it's a ramble, and looks like there is little to no point.
