Finally, I get off my backside and write about the ongoing plastering IIPM is getting from the Blogosphere. I was about to write war, but it hardly seems that, does it? The blogosphere is consistently proving itself one step ahead of IIPM, but what one fears is the establishment, which has not proved itself very tech-savvy in the past.
So much has been written on this that anything I say will be mere repetition. Kaps’ call to action and Zuckerman’s concise version of the events, along with Desipundit’s painstaking chronicling of the whole fiasco should suffice for a primer. Of course, Desipundit has also linked to many blog posts on this topic.
So, what now, you ask.
Kiruba has made some buttons you can put on your site to show your support for the Blogosphere.
Arzan has put up an online petition that you can sign on Petitiononline.
You can also use one of the buttons here to link to the petition, and to call your visitors’ attention to the issue. You can also link them to any of the numerous posts on various blogs about this issue.
All these buttons were made using the 80×15 Brilliant Button Maker.
Based on your level of outrage, you can show your support, call for people to boycott IIPM or just let off steam by saying IIPM sucks!
