PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet

Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! – fightforthefuture.org/pipa

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting “creativity”. The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites– they just have to convince a judge that the site is “dedicated to copyright infringement.”

The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year — that’s for a fix that won’t work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

Bruce Lawson | HTML5 Semantics: you too can be a bedwetting antfucker

Bruce Lawson | HTML5 Semantics: you too can be a bedwetting antfucker

With all the whizzbangs of canvas and multimedia, the Ooh!s of the History API and the Aah!s of Appcache, the 30 new elements in HTML5 are often overlooked by developers coming to terms with what’s new in the HTML Hood.

But semantics aren’t the boring old comfortable cardigan in your developer wardrobe – they’re the studded leather codpiece around which the rest of your Mighty HTML Warrior’s armour is built.

We’ll look at how the new HTML elements came about, note problems with their current specifications, then wonder whether those problems are actually features rather than bugs. We’ll also consider the WHATWG’s penchant for “teleological semantics” and, back in cardigan mode, propose a middle ground.

There will be no Turkish dancing videos.
