Internet Defense League, assemble!

As you can see on my right banner, I’ve joined the Internet Defense League initiative.

Besides admitting my main intention is to impress as many girls as possible, I have to recognize the need of an initiative like this, promoted by the EFF and Fight for the Future organizations.

The Internet Defense League takes the tactic that killed SOPA & PIPA and turns it into a permanent force for defending the internet, and making it better. Think of it like the internet’s Emergency Broadcast System, or its bat signal!

The Problem

Internet freedom and individual power are changing the course of history. But entrenched institutions and monopolies want this to stop. Elected leaders often don’t understand the internet, so they’re easily confused or corrupted.

The plan

When the internet’s in danger and we need millions of people to act, the League will ask its members to broadcast an action. (Say, a prominent message asking everyone to call their elected leaders). With the combined reach of our websites and social networks, we can be massively more effective than any one organization.
