Tomorrow, in protest of a bill that will go before the senate greatly limiting the freedoms enjoyed over the internet, WordPress.org, Wiki-pedia, Mozilla, and countless other e-staples of the web will go ‘BLACK’.

After showing your support – if you are an American citizen you can visit americancensorship.org to do so – go outside. Don’t use the weather as an excuse. I’m assuming if you can afford a computer and internet access, you might also have enough clothes to dress for the weather.
Bring a book with you; read.

Hold the door for someone incredibly far away.
I will allow earbuds; we all need a soundtrack.
