They Can Take Our Lives, But They’ll Never Take Our Wikipedia

0 - Published January 23, 2012 by in Site News

The internet is trying to tell you something today, January 18th, about two bills in Congress (SOPA and PIPA).

Check out Google, Wikipedia, Reddit, or a wide range of sites that are participating in a protest in response to concerns over the future of the open web.

LaxAllStars is a byproduct of the internet age, along with the idea that a core pillar of the web is open expression and sharing of information and ideas. In our opinion, if these bills were to pass it would put future like-minded entrepreneurs in jeopardy.

But hey that’s just like, our opinion, man.

Take a minute today to get informed on the issues and make up your own mind. Al Gore invented this series of tubes a while back that could be helpful if you’re looking for a way to easily access information.
