Join Columbia Journalism School (@ColumbiaJourn) in the latest of its timely, useful webcasts about technology and media. We'll discuss the implications of the U.S. Congressional bills known as SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), which have attracted tremendous attention in the last few days.
On Wed., Jan 18, Wikipedia's English section is going to be blacked out as part of an unprecedented protest against the bills. This will serve as the focus of our discussion, but we'll address various sides of this, including what issues journalists should be thinking about as they cover SOPA & PIPA.
Everyone from President Obama to Ruper Murdoch seems to have weighed in, but what it all means isn't clear. Clarity is what we'll aim to bring to the issue.
Hosting the show are Prof. Sree Sreenivasan (@sree), Columbia J-school digital professor and Dean of Student Affairs and Alexander Hotz (@hotzington), a reporter on The New York World, the J-school's new government accountability site named for Joseph Pulitzer's legendary newspaper. Confirmed guests taking calls include Prof. Andrew Lih (@fuzheado) of USC Annenberg, author of "Wikipedia Revolution: How a Bunch of Nobodies Created the World's Greatest Encyclopedia"; Steve Myers (@myersnews), managing editor of Poynter.org; Julian Sanchez (@normative), fellow at Cato Institute and Economist writer.

So here it is, this is the age of the internet. We have been here for a while now, over 20 years, and we have seen some a lot from mankind life altering creation. Let me be clear: I AM A FAN OF FREE SPEECH, FREE INTERNET, I HATE SUPER RICH CORPORATIONS AND CAPITALISM, AND I USE PIRATED SOFTWARE ALL THE TIME. Thats just full disclosure, I haven't paid for software in 10 years. BUT I AM ALSO AN ARTIST, I OWN AN INDIE LABEL, AND I CREATE INELUCTABLE PROPERTY THAT I INTEND ON MAKING MONEY OFF OF (a lot of it someday). So here is my conundrum, a new bill named SOPA (STOP ONLINE PIRACY ACT) and PIPA (PROTECT IP ACT). Two new bills introduced by our government to basically make people pay for music, film, video..anything that someone created intellectually and are trying to profit from it. This is the thing, ALMOST NO ONE THINKS ITS A GOOD IDEA EXCEPT THE PEOPLE WHO INTRODUCED IT. No one that is, except people like ME. Yes, me...the anti government, screw big brother, conspiracy theory following (sometimes) , reformed drug -dealing, democrat voting host of an internet radio show. WHAT THE F*** IS WRONG WITH ME, RIGHT? Well I will tell ya. You see...I'm all for free shit...EXCEPT FREE MUSIC THAT WASN'T MEANT TO BE FREE! At the END OF THE DAY I have too much respect for the process of making music, what it takes creatively and financially, to say that something that will force people to pay for it is a BAD THING. The industry I am in, the MUSIC INDUSTRY, is in SHAMBLES due to PIRACY. If you cant understand that, then you will have to go toe to toe with me on this. I know this bill may be extreme, and it cane be toned down a bit for sure, but what it MAINLY wants to do is make people ante up for enjoying the art that took SEVERAL people TIME AND MONEY to make. I'm not mad at that one bit.
It's Wednesday, January 18 and many of your favorite websites have gone black in protest of a couple of congressional bills that would destroy the Internet as we know it. But Cynematic, Julie Pippert and Donna Schwartz Mills are still here today to explain it all to you. And with the State of the Union address just a week away, we're thinking about what we'd like President Obama to say. Anita Jackson of MomsRising will be with us to discuss what would be most valuable to women.
We'll also spend some time talking about the War on Women and the Silver Ribbon Campaign's Trust Women Week and March, January 20-27.
