Must read.
Sergey Brin originally shared:
 
In just two decades, the world wide web has transformed and democratized access to information all around the world. I am proud of the role Google has played alongside many others such as Yahoo, Wikipedia, and Twitter. Whether you are a student in an internet cafe in the developing world or a head of state of a wealthy nation, the knowledge of the world is at your fingertips.

Of course, offering these services has come with its challenges. Multiple countries have sought to suppress the flow of information to serve their own political goals. At various times notable Google websites have been blocked in China, Iran, Libya (prior to their revolution), Tunisia (also prior to revolution), and others. For our own websites and for the internet as a whole we have worked tirelessly to combat internet censorship around the world alongside governments and NGO promoting free speech.

Thus, imagine my astonishment when the newest threat to free speech has come from none other but the United States. Two bills currently making their way through congress -- SOPA and PIPA -- give the US government and copyright holders extraordinary powers including the ability to hijack DNS and censor search results (and this is even without so much as a proper court trial). While I support their goal of reducing copyright infringement (which I don't believe these acts would accomplish), I am shocked that our lawmakers would contemplate such measures that would put us on a par with the most oppressive nations in the world.

This is why I signed on to the following open letter with many other founders - http://dq99alanzv66m.cloudfront.net/sopa/img/12-14-letter.pdf

What were you doing when you came up with your best ideas? I've recently realized that going for a long walk works pretty well for me.

Can anyone suggest a widget or API that exists where you can showcase items from multiple online retailers - similar to a wish list (think Donors Choose or a wedding registry) - giving people an opportunity to purchase things in need directly? I am working on a new project and this would really help with transparency. Thanks.

Josette Sheeran is the head of the UN's World Food Program. Here's one way to help: Text "FOOD" to UNICEF (864233) to donate $10--enough to feed a child for 10 days

Great site +Soraya Darabi it's a new one to me. I use www.bustaname.com http://www.rhymezone.com paired with http://namechk.com and http://www.trademarkia.com as part of my name and claim process for new products and businesses. I'm curious what other tools people are using for naming businesses? and other great articles on the process

How do you handle unsolicited email requests for mentorship/advice? Trying to balance my time - but I remember how it can make all the difference to answer a few questions for a budding young entrepreneur.

Puzzled... trying to find a word that contains the letter 'O' to use as the header for the press clippings/media/news section of a website. Any suggestions?

+Janet Ginsburg a bit too similar to About, which I am using already. I think 'coverage' is going to work though. Thanks for the input!
