OSNews, Generic OSes ...and we're back. Like so many other sites on the web, OSNews joined the worldwide protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, which threaten to end free speech, economic innovation, privacy, and the free exchange of information on the web. I don't wish to waste too many words on our participation, so consider this item as a sort of comment lightening rod to make sure that when the next story is posted, we can focus fully on its topic. Update: DC seems to be getting the message the internet sent today.

the (sic) Netherlands

Not to toot our own horn, but we have always been very practical and we are pretty freedom loving and tolerant. If a controlling party had to be apppointed, going with The Netherlands would probably be the least bad choice in your list of options.

Then again, I'd like the Internet to become less centralized, not more.
