Ok, so I've been hearing a lot about this new policy congress was trying to pass through (SOPA) and naturally, me being me, I didn't really feel all that concerned. But I've done some thinking on the topic and realized that the United States controls all of the internet! I mean think about it, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), aka the people who assign domain names, is a company based out of California; not to mention that about 78% of the worlds DNS servers are in the USA.
So basically if this were to pass the United States government could shut down any site they wanted, for practically any reason. So this got me thinking...what the hell would I do without the internet!?! Yeh, bit of an over-reaction, but none-the-less, this jump-started my idea to create a completely free alternative to the internet...
