If your favorite website is not available today, if you can't share images on twitter because Twitpic is not available, or can't satiate your curiosity because Wikipedia has gone dark it is because of SOPA. That is but a taste of what could happen if SOPA ever passed. Even though SOPA has gone away, at least for now, many major websites and blogs have selected today as a day to go fully dark in protest.

Instead of going dark we decided to share this video created by Kirby Ferguson, of Everything Is A Remix fame, as it clearly explains PIPA, the Senate's version of SOPA, and presents the repercussions.

About The Mechanism

The Mechanism was founded in 2001 on the principle that success in new and traditional media would demand tighter connections between multiple customer messaging channels. We strongly believe that a good team is one that collaborates face-to-face and in person, which is why we avoid outsourced development. Our mission is to help our clients communicate with their target markets effectively and seamlessly across all channels and media types. We do this by using time-tested skills, processes, tools and techniques to deliver rich user experiences and solid technology platforms.
