I'm posting this from the future -- it's already 2012 in this part of the world (woohoo!)
I wrote my first column for 2012 today and in it I speculate that SOPA, if it's passed into law, might just be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
While governments all over the world seek to control, regulate, restrict and constrain the internet so as to protect their own power to impose ideologies on those who elect them to power, I have a feeling that SOPA could be just one step too far and might act as a catalyst for the kind of uprising they are trying to suppress.
2012 could be a watershed year and the byte may finally become more powerful than the bullet -- or the ballot.
Read it if you're interested. 2012, the year of the cyber-rebel?
