Welcome to Gaia! ::

Apparently not.

Enter CISPA, SOPA and PIPA's little brother.

*facepalm* Really Congress? Did you forget about the SOPA backlash already?

What's even more disturbing is that several tech companies are BACKING this new bill.

The question is: will the internet activist vanguard be able to drum up grassroots support against the bill without the backing of companies like FACEBOOK.

They're only setting up secure channels between the State and the industrial sector. Which in itself isn't something spectacular as they have had these channels over other forms of communication for a while.

Eh?

Okay, I need a source for that one. I know the government is willing to do some unusual stuff, but that just sounds crazy. As in "more bizarre than pockybot's views" level of crazy. Somewhere out deep in the Oort cloud of conspiracy theories sort of thing.

Gaming networks (like psn or XboxLive) are a means of communication as well as entertainment, that's probably why.
