Tell Congress not to censor the internet NOW! – fightforthefuture.org/pipa
PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting “creativity”. The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites– they just have to convince a judge that the site is “dedicated to copyright infringement.”
The government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be considered illegal behavior according to this bill.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, this bill would cost us $47 million tax dollars a year ??? that’s for a fix that won’t work, disrupts the internet, stifles innovation, shuts out diverse voices, and censors the internet. This bill is bad for creativity and does not protect your rights.

Today, we’re pleased to announce that Delicious has been acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. As creators of the largest online video platform, they have firsthand experience enabling millions of users to share their experiences with the world. They are committed to running and improving Delicious going forward.
Providing a seamless transition for users is incredibly important for both companies. Yahoo! will continue to operate Delicious until approximately July 2011. When the transition period is complete, your information will be moved over to Delicious’ new owner.
Starting today, we will ask you to login to Delicious again and agree to let Yahoo! transfer your bookmarks to the new owner. That way, you’ll enjoy uninterrupted use of the service and will keep your account and all of your bookmarks when we make the transition. For more information on the Delicious transition, please refer to this FAQ.
Thank you for your patience in this time of transition and thank you for using Delicious!
A year ago on the last day of summer, I restarted Gnolia – then
still Ma.gnolia. Since its relaunch, a very few of you have been
using it, while most of you have understandably moved on.
I’m sure this is due to a combination of factors, such as:
– It’s hard to just pick up again after such a big disruption of
both the service and the brand;
– I haven’t been devoting enough time and energy to growing the
– Link saving and sharing has evolved and moved into different
places as the social web has moved forward.
Thus, upon reflection, I’ve decided to close Gnolia back down
and focus my resources on a couple of other projects that have
greater potential and brighter futures.
The details: *Gnolia will go into read-only mode in a week on
September 29, 2010. It will then remain available for bookmark
exporting until at least November 30, 2010.*
Finally, I can’t thank you enough for your faith and support
over the past five years or so. I’ll be excited to share my
future plans with you as they unfold. Please don’t hesitate to
keep in touch.
I think this outcome was almost inevitable :-/
Good luck for the next project Larry … in “those days” I liked Ma.Gnolia really much and the Groups used to promote useful links in ways that even the “new Digg” isn’t capable of …
