“There are people you do not want to upset in the world. And big groups of people you don’t want to upset would obviously include the politically disenfranchised who feel they have nothing to lose, and those that feel that the time has come for Revolution. Then out on the edges beyond any of those are science fiction and fantasy fans whose favorite show has been cancelled in an untimely way.”—http://boingboing.net/2011/12/27/dont-mess-with-firefly-how.html (via neil-gaiman)
The Internet is probably the most important technological advancement of my lifetime. Its strength lies in its open architecture and its ability to allow a framework where all voices can be heard. Like the printing press before it (which states also tried to regulate, for centuries), it democratizes information, and thus it democratizes power. If we allow Congress to pass these draconian laws, we’ll be joining nations like China and Iran in filtering what we allow people to see, do, and say on the Web.
When I woke up this morning and saw my dashboard filled with love for my Wil Wheaton piece I was very flattered. It has the second most notes next to my Fake Criterion of Swallow My Cockuccino (it currently has 77 notes and Wil’s has 29 and there both still going up). Thank you fuckkyeahwilwheaton and everybody who reblogged it and everyone else who hearted! it (Wil Wheaton being among them). It’s always nice to know that your artwork is appreciated, especially by the person it was made for.
Pretty soon I will be replacing it with a much cleaner and more refined version!
