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.

I'm culturally Russian Orthodox, why would I place the biggest turd on my own cultural background? Not knowing it is really not the case.

But, hey, unlike most people in the world I have the luxury of being brought up in a wildly multicultural family. And when I say wildly I mean: Christians, Muslims, Jews and Buddhists all mixed but not merged...

What about Eire?

Currently living in Dublin for a few months, I can tell you that the Irish have a very "unique" outlook on corruption. By my standards, which are set to those of Scandinavians, this country has a lot of corruption. In fact, much more than their "orange brethren" from the north.
