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.
A white anti-SOPA facade
An image containing a lot of white and a cryptic message, the genesis of which I forget, but which may as well now be a cryptic anti-SOPA comment,
What my white cat thinks of SOPA
a white gull and a white boat
White clouds, representing the absence of SOPA
A solid focal point of hard rock in a sea of white-positive anti-SOPA space.
