GIS News - From the AnyGeo Blog
Written by glenn   
18 January 2012
I applaud all those individuals and businesses electing to stand up and show their support in fighting the proposed legislation that threatens Internet freedoms (SOPA). As you can see, GISuser.com and this blog is available and being updated today as usual, however, this does not mean in any way that we are supporting SOPA. My personal belief is that my action in blacking out our sites today could serve to harm us  (we have contractual obligations to advertisers and sponsors) and in other ways. I hope you respect that decision and appreciate that we are using our voice to share useful information about SOPA and how you can provide feedback.

Kudos to fellow GeoGeek Bill Dollins (@billdollins) who has "blacked out" his GeoMusings blog today and has provided some valuable information as well, I encourage you to check out what Bill has shared and consider contacting Congress using the handy form that Bill has provided to his site visitors. See http://blog.geomusings.com/ - James Fee @cageyjames has also done the same at http://spatiallyadjusted.com/

Have you blacked out your website in protest of SOPA? If so feel free to email me glenn at gisuser.com or tweet me @gletham
