It appears as though half of the Internet is going dark tomorrow in protest of SOPA and PROTECT-IP. Wikipedia, Reddit, BoingBoing, MoveOn (hopefully they stay dark), The Daily Paul, and even my own sister’s website are going to be unavailable. This move will certainly increase the productivity of the human race notably if nothing else.
So what about myself, is A Geek With Guns going dark? Not a chance. It’s going to take a lot more than PROTECT-IP (since SOAP is effectively dead) to shut me up. Even if PROTECT-IP passed and government were to accuse me of violating copyright causing my domain name service (DNS) records to be hijacked I’ll setup a new domain name, a Tor hidden service (which I’m planning on doing anyways), or some other workaround because I refuse to submit to censorship.
I can also tell you that the second PROTECT-IP passes I’m going to setup my own DNS server that will give the correct IP address to sites that have been blocked by those pricks in Washington. The IP address of this DNS server will be given out to all who want it so they can bypass the state’s censorship as well.
