I’m not an expert on tech policy (or policy in general), but as far as I can tell the proposed “Stop Online Piracy Act” is really atrocious in its (possibly unconstitutional?) over-reach, and would probably be very bad for bloggers, mathematics, and the internet. Following Tim Gowers, Wikipedia, and others, I’ll be blocking this blog tomorrow. I couldn’t find out a good way to do this (those with a custom stylesheet can directly edit things to do so), so like Gowers, I’ll make this blog private for a day.

Edit: It actually seems that WordPress has provided a means to do this directly. Let’s see how that works.
