SOPA and PIPA Battle Numbers

So I was reading the latest news on SOPA and PIPA and have just found out that more members of the Senate have pulled out their the support for the said bill. At the moment, the current count is 33 YES, 37 NO, and 40 UNDECIDED.

There are some comments in the web suggesting that one of ideas on how these bills were formulated was based on the strategies done by the Chinese government to censor its media.

Approximately 160 sites have confirmed their attendance to the blackout this Wednesday.

According to, 75,000 sites are already participating on fight against SOPA.

On the contrary their are 354 companies officially supporting SOPA, but I wouldn't be surprised if this number will start to dwindle with more of the major SOPA players being hacked by a group who call themselves Anonymous. Their latest attacks took down the sites belonging to the Universal Music Group, DOJ, FBI, Sony, RIAA, MPAA and lastly the Warner Music Group.

Will the supporters of SOPA and PIPA finally fold?

We all know how SOPA and PIPA can badly affect the internet. With the sheer number of 50,000 signatures on the petition against it and its currently 'shelved' state, when will the people pursuing the passing of this bill stop?

What to expect in the following days for the fight against PIPA? Possible black outs from the following websites:

Boing Boing
The entire Cheezburger network
And more to come.

It's a dead given that the Internet is a powerful tool. It's been proven to have greatly influenced the decisions of entities such as the White House ang Go Daddy.

What is there to talk about?

So at this moment, I'm just enjoying one of my nights typing useless bickering on my phone.

Blogging may be a thing of the past, but it is definitely still alive.

True, forums are what's currently in, but the upkeep is also expensive during its early phases.

Unfortunately, if you aren't a celebrity blogger, traffic is scarce which makes income generation pretty difficult. One of the important things to consider in blogging is networking. Sigh, that I lack of.

Just a piece of my mind. Good night!

Iloilo Site: Plazuela de Iloilo

Sometime during the Christmas, I went to the mall and passed through Plazuela de Iloilo. It was well-lit during that time and I had to take a pretty picture of it. 

Unfortunately, even with the three shots I've taken, they were all dim. Sigh, I guess I'll eventually need to get myself a nice camera.
