Grace Online Update

Hi Everyone,

Grace Online is back and operational again. My blog was on strike against SOPA and PIPA yesterday. I hoped you called them, email them, tweet them, and fax them against these horrible laws.

Wikipedia said the best "Imagine a world without free knowledge" during the blackout. 

We didn't win the SOPA and PIPA war, but we bought awareness to them. I hoped that SOPA and PIPA get shelved forever. 

Thank you for protecting the Internet and free speech.
