SOPA Aaaaargh!


Wikipedia is going black and silent for a day to protest the  SOPA legislation. Yay Jimmy. I’ll never complain about your sad puppy-dog face asking for donations again!

Time allowing, I would write about SOPA. But it doesn’t so I won’t. Suffice to say that it is an interesting symptom of 20C law fraying in the face of 21C technology. Or maybe it will be a case of the primary power of the  corporation in 21C, as it weaves a defensive shield from the golden threads of pre-21C law.

Either way, I digress, ramble etc. Isn’t this supposed to be a photo blog?

Yes it is! And I’m doing two things to show my non-solidarity with SOPA  and the interest behind it.

Firstly, since Wiki is urging a turn to black to protest, and this page usually is black, I’ve joined in by being temporarily non-black.

Secondly, I’ve collated a few white photos, or photos of  white things, which I’ll post below.

If anyone wants to call Guinness World Records to alert them to this being the palest, most luke-warm protest against anything ever, just call  +44 (0)20 7891 4567.

    sopa is soup in spanish.

    our grandmothers have a saying, “si no te gusta la sopa, pues dos platos” that translates as “if you do not like soup, then you will have two servings”.
