SOPA and PIPA

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything; and yes, I am bothered by this and plan (well, hope) to turn that around soon.

I don’t have much to say for myself today, but as it is a big day for the anti-SOPA movement I thought I’d at least use this space to post a link to my company’s (ThoughtWorks) official statement on the issue.

In traditional ThoughtWorks fashion, the statement not only addresses the technical shortcomings of the proposed legislation but also criticizes the process by which it has been drafted and promoted thus far. It was written by the company’s Technology Advisory Board, a group of prominent figures within ThoughtWorks including Martin Fowler.

Hopefully I’ll have a happier (or anyway, less gloomy) post up here in the near future.
