Noticed the following tool today, it allows you to change your profile pic on twitter and to download a copy of it to use on other social networking sites … to show your opposition to SOPA and PIPPA
So far 10,000+ ppl have shown their opposition of SOPA by blacking out their profile pics.
You can show your aversion to SOPA too via: http://www.blackoutsopa.org/
There is also the Boycott SOPA by Extreme Tech which is a free android app for your smartphone.
Once installed, use Boycott SOPA to scan the barcodes of books, CDs, magazines, DVDs, and other media to see if the producer or publisher is a member of the RIAA, MPAA, the BSA, or another organization that’s publicly supported SOPA.

We will showcase the live video stream of the House hearing where Internet entrepreneurs and technical experts (including reddit co-founder Alexis “kn0thing” Ohanian) will be testifying.
