Who’s afraid of the big bad #sopa?

…I am! And in the latest episode of DTLT Today Boone and Wally Gorges lay out a pretty compelling case why anyone doing anything related to open education online in higher education should be too. Boone and Wally brilliantly talked us through some of the possible implications of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) should it eventually become the law of the land in the U.S. Boone’s post on the topic here led us to have him on the show, and I would take a page out of Boone’s book and encourage you to think hard about what SOPA might mean for the work you do online, whether you are in the field of education or otherwise. What’s more, get off your ass and do something about it if you believe it could potentially live up to even a fraction of the threat people claim.
