Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Why is Silicon Valley silent on CISPA?

This is why we have to find a way to get everyone’s attention this time. Unlike what I’m seeing a lot of people say, the truth is these bills are very different, particularly in that this one actually benefits companies. The fact that it negatively impacts your privacy doesn’t concern them. There isn’t going to be a Google or Twitter joining in on a blackout date to reach the apathetic masses. I want to believe that this will get crushed by the senate/president as they claim, but let’s not leave it up to them and create another fight. SOPA proved that people do care about online rights and honestly this bill attacks ones that probably affect them more.

Insanity: CISPA Just Got Way Worse, And Then Passed On Rushed Vote

I honestly don’t know what they’re thinking here.  The disconnect between the house and the general public is unbelievable, do they even watch the news?  If they did this because they think not enough people pay attention to issues like this to matter, prove them wrong internet.  Show them we don’t need wikipedia or google to show us when somebody is losing their basic rights online!
