Legal The saga surrounding SOPA will be dominating the headlines for a while yet, and today is no different. First of all, and most importantly, the European Parliament has adopted a resolution against SOPA, while also calling for net neutrality to become part of EU law. Second, and this is also interesting, we now have a list of software companies which are against freedom of speech on the web. Unsurprisingly, Apple and Microsoft are on this list. Update: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has spoken out against SOPA. Update II: Tumbler's anti-SOPA message on their website generated almost 90000 (!) phone calls to representatives. Amazing.

Thom, what's it take to move to NL? I'm actually considering it. Canada's just following down the exact same path as these folks, if you can't say we're there already...

I would consider emigrating to a Nordic country instead of the Netherlands. Because I move a lot between the Netherlands(I'm Dutch) and Finland I'm interested in both countries paths. I find the Finnish(and other Nordic) politics and mentalities to be much less short sighted the ours.

...tonight I'm actually emigrating to a nordic country myself again...Skyrim ;)
