This seems like a bad idea. I don't currently need a new camera and I should be sleeping

I'm against SOPA / PIPA, and here is why.

I think that we, the architects of the internet, are able to create bottom-up solutions for current and future problems. A good example of this is Creative Commons, and here I am at Google talking about how it affects "piracy" in my world of digital photography. this video should jump ahead to 11:48 automatically

So, for those of you New World citizens who are aware of a lot of frightened noise coming out of the European financial community, be advised that this is horribly, horribly serious, and if it blows up, the whole world will shudder. I'd like to introduce two links as supporting evidence (even though G+ only wants me to have one; I'll fool it by inserting a picture of some Frankfurt bank towers).

First, the Financial Times' Martin Wolf is probably single most authoritative European source of conventional economic wisdom. Money quote from http://goo.gl/RQpD4 : “The costs of a meltdown would be too grave to contemplate. The members simply have to prevent that. They have no sane alternative.”

Second, John Hempton, Aussie financial blogger who's come out of nowhere to become remarkably influential and widely-read; he's, um, colorful. Money quote from http://goo.gl/FmsvK : “And for that Europe will need troops on borders. Armed and dangerous.”

Frankly, I don’t see how disaster can be avoided. Greece is massively insolvent; in the colloquial, flat broke with huge debts. What would you do if you were a European central banker?
