Yesterday we took part in the protest against PIPA and SOPA, two highly flawed bills heading through congress at this time. Here are a few things I figured out.

  • It is surprisingly difficult to take down my websites without going nuclear, and I failed in completely taking them offline for 24 hours.  While I was not able to shut down direct access to all internal content like I wanted, I was able to redirect the homepages of our 10 websites to my personal PSA against PIPA and SOPA.  While trying to finish my protest our internet went out completely (thank you Comcast) so I shut down and decided to protest further by staying offline myself for 24 hours to see what a useless internet would be like.  And it kind of sucked.
  • Just after noon I broke an essential tool used in my OMMP caregiving for some very sick patients, a tool that needs to be replaced immediately.  I turned towards my computer to search and order what I needed and quickly realized that the useful internet was gone for today.  It forced me to rethink how I would source this tool locally or get by without it, which is all well and good but I need this problem solved now, so for this specialty item I decided to wait for the blackout to end and then order exactly what I need online, from a useful internet.
  • At one point I wondered about the weather and instead of looking at weather.com like I normally would, I stood up and went to the door to look outside and figure it out.  That worked really well.
  • Not much else was learned, but I did get a lot of things done that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
  • Contact your representatives now to protest PIPA and SOPA.

I came across this recently and had to share.  Fucking incredible. Read the behind the scenes interview link below about setting up the op for a great story.

COOKIE COUNT: 1,600+

NEXT OCCUPATION:  Sunday, November 13th
Chapman Square, SW 3rd & Main, Portland Oregon.

In support of Occupy Portland we have been baking chocolate chip cookies to deliver to the site..  I am too old to sleep down there but I figure somebody in that crowd is fighting for me.. and they deserve a cookie.

We are asking like minded individuals to bake delicious cookies and join us EVERY Sunday night (or pick a different night) for delivery to EVERY occupy camp, worldwide.

- UPDATES -

11/06/11 UPDATE: OPERATION SUCCESS…  300+ home made chocolate chip cookies handed out at the Occupation tonight.  As has been widely reported, the mental health situation at the camp is deteriorating.  We have noticed it weekly with more and more of Portland’s homeless taking up shelter in the Occupation Camp.  It is feeling more and more dangerous at night, even for us.  We did see active engagement on the part of Occupation Volunteers to address this growing situation.  Hang in there everyone..
