Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week and (hopefully) preparing yourself for that much needed break towards the end of this year.
One noteworthy news I have been following is the “development” of the SOPA proposed bill, which vote has been delayed for apparently next week. Stop Online Piracy Act has been a much debated subject in the past weeks and it is really interesting to see how this whole thing would unfold. Should this go through, it appears that many “websites” who infringes copyright could be blacklisted in 2012. Many argue that this could be a potential “disaster” and freedom of speech eventually hampered. We’ll see. How about you? What is your take on SOPA? Do you agree, disagree, or somewhere in between?
On a side note, I really don’t remember how I stumbled upon this document, but it is a collaborative document about How To Use Google+ which was written by 120+ users at the same time. If you are looking for a How To Google+ Guide, you may want to look at this one. It is awesome!
Anyway, and as usual, in no particular order.
