Another cool writeup on us from a pharma industry blog. Pharma's got an interesting problem with social media... they are bound by regulations about what they and their customers can post and share. I guess someone might post something that could be construed as promoting an off-label use. Capsul8 seems to help solve some of that by aggregating third party reviews and critiques. Cool!

International Data Privacy Day is tomorrow, time to bone up on some legalese. Read a few of the best articles on what Google's new changes mean and why you should care.

SF SOPA/PIPA protest today... amazing group of speakers. Capsul8 is blacked out and is proud to stand in solidarity with Internet visionaries like Craig Newmark and Brewster Kahle. Thanks to Hackers & Founders for organizing.

Well, The Great Internet Blackout is just about over and our favorite sites are back to normal... but that doesn't mean it's time to forget. It's time to finish the job. Time to kill these draconian bills and find solutions that don't criminalize innovation.

I created this capsule to preserve what we collectively did today and keep the message alive. I preserved blacked-out Wikipedia. I preserved censored Craigslist. And I preserved The Oatmeal's steamy koala-on-goat action. This is exactly why we created Capsul8, to preserve what matters on the web so it doesn't disappear. And it's why Suhail and I stood outside City Hall in protest this afternoon.

We continue to work tirelessly to partner with more media companies. Our success is their gain. Under SOPA or PIPA, that dynamic changes. We'd be subject to extortion or face criminal action for creating this service. Startups like ours would effectively be stillborn.

Since Gutenberg's Press first starting pumping out Bibles, regulators have been quick on the heels of every information-sharing technological advancement with a pair of shackles. This is what my mentor, the late Michael Hart, the founder of Project Gutenberg and inventor of the ebook, fought against his whole life. Often he felt like he was speaking to an empty room. Today, he would have been proud. Please call your legislators and continue to make your voice heard.

Introduction
I'm a tech startup veteran and founder of Leaf & Square Consulting. I love working on data visualization and working to make a positive impact. Couldn't do it without the support of my family, especially my wife, Heather. I've grown up and lived most of my life in the Bay Area and I think it's pretty great here. And I love baseball.
