LXer: With SOPA gone, setting Internet advocacy’s next stop

Published at LXer:

In January, several tech companies aided by a groundswell of support from communities across the Web fought to derail a pair of online piracy bills — and won. Since the fight against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP (Intellectual Property) Act ended, there’s been a lot of discussion about where, exactly to direct all that energy. Reddit and the site’s co-founder Alexis Ohanian have an idea: they’re launching a bus tour that will introduce the Internet itself as a player in the 2012 election. “The bus will be half-red and half-blue, with ‘Internet 2012’ on the side of it, where the candidate’s name would be,” Ohanian said in an interview with The Washington Post.
