We interrupt this program to bring you an urgent bulletin
SOPA, a very dangerous piece of legislation, one which could literally threaten the Internet as we know, it is worming its way through congress.
If it becomes law, online free-form radio stations (like whrwfm.org or wfmu) may go silent, new artists who've relied on the Internet to gain a following may be shut out and from the looks of it, YOU could lose your Internet service - permanently - through no fault of your own.
If you're at all concerned about freedom of expression, you need to see this NY Times article. (Breaking developments concerning SOPA are covered on boingboing.net)
