You may know that the internet is going on strike on January 18. Some of the biggest sites in the world are shutting down for the day to protest internet censorship. The Stop Online Piracy Act gives corporations the power to shut down web sites that contain content they claim is theirs. It’s the same technology that allows Iran and China to block web sites.

Think that sucks? So do I. If I were more blog-savvy, I’d be able to make my blog redirect to the SOPA Strike website. But since I’m a gardener, not a programmer, I’ll put the link here for you to check out.

Fraudulent Farmgirl
I teach garden and homesteading skills—the stuff your great-grandmother knew how to do.
