Unless you were stuck in a cave, you almost certainly heard about the proposed SOPA and PIPA bills and last Wednesday’s day of protest all over the internet that it resulted in. If somehow you missed what the whole bill was about, see The Oatmeal’s hilarious SOPA explanation. While websites all over the world were blacking out their pages in a new form of activism, the folks at New York Tech Meetup decided to take an old school approach and led a rally in front of the office building of New York’s two Senators.
As with last year’s Meetup with Mayor Bloomberg, NYTM brought me in to document the event. See some of the photos after the jump.
