White out

Frozen

As most of my readers probably already know, major internet sites like Wikipedia have gone dark today, a blackout to protest SOPA and PIPA, two bills that would severely limit access to online information. Even my favorite webcomic has joined in.

I decided to protest with a whiteout instead of a blackout because in this part of the world, it’s a more appropriate metaphor. It’s snow and ice that can stop the flow of information, shut down businesses, and freeze progress.

Oh... I could eat that yummy fluffy snow right now! There's nothing more annoying than a brown winter... :(

I'm jealous of your snow.

Great idea to have a white-out, though!
