Re: “Vote for Me – But This Isn't a Political Sign!

Regulating political speech is not simple. This will be an interesting case to follow. Thanks for sharing!

Re: “Access Humboldt Goes Dark

All regular TV programming will continue, but Internet services are subject to interruption by SOPA!

Here's clarification on our action today:

"Access Humboldt is participating in global action to highlight US legislation that threatens commercial censorship of the public Internet. While the website will stay live - it will launch with prominent announcement of the Strike, information about the issue, and links to take action. In addition, thousands of local videos hosted at the Community Media Archive will not be available during the day. The following message will be displayed on our Archive page:

"12 Hours Dark: the Internet Archive vs. Censorship

The Internet Archive believes that it is critical to protest and raise awareness of pending legislation in the United States: House Bill 3261, The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and S.968, the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA).

We are going dark from 6am to 6pm PST on Wednesday, January 18 (14:00 - 02:00 UTC) to drive a message to Washington. We need your help to do this.

Legislation such as this directly affects libraries (pdf) such as the Internet Archive, which collects, preserves, and offers access to cultural materials. Furthermore, these laws can negatively affect the ecosystem of web publishing that led to the emergence of the Internet Archive.

For United States residents, please take action.

For non-US Residents: Sorry for dragging you into this, and if you are willing please sign a petition to the State Department to express your concern."

Re: “Redundant Broadband Fiber Complete

Apologies for leading with a critique - which raises a deeper, structural issue, not specific to this project...

Obviously, this is a great accomplishment and we all owe a debt to the folks who've worked so hard for so long to make it happen ... and I'd have to add Chris Crawford and Larry Goldberg to the list mentioned in IP Network's press release.

As indicated in our release: CONGRATULATIONS to All!

Re: “Redundant Broadband Fiber Complete

Public funds covered 40% of the investment and the public retained 0% ownership ... need a new model for publicly financed broadband networks that will include community ownership!

Here's Access Humboldt's release on today's news:
