Moving to my new journal

If you've kept up with my latest posts, you will know that after some consideration, I have decided to migrate to a new journal. All the fanfic that is on this journal will remain up, but by the end of the week, I hope to have all my other entries set to private. This post will remain at the top of this journal, and unlocked.

I am now under the username starkidwarbler.

All fanfic I post in the future will be under the new username, so if you wish to keep up with me, I suggest you join me there.

A Grand Thanks for the V-Gifts!

Hey! I wanted to say thanks to those of you who sent me hearts today! I sent hearts back, but I figured a post would be awesome.

ALSO: I wanted to remind you guys that I am no longer posting fanfic or...well, anything else to this account anymore, with rare exceptions such as these. I am now at starkidwarbler. Right now, I'm posting mostly Glee fic, but I still intend to do SPN stuff when the muse allows.

Seriously considering deleting this account...

...and starting a new account with a new name, fewer friends/comms, and the like.

Like I said in my last post, LJ has become a chore, and I fear that if I don't do something about this, then I will inadvertently abandon my account all together. I still have a few months of extra userpics, but I'm not sure that it's worth it to wait. Realistically, if I get some gen!userpics instead of several for pairings and one for every character, I won't need to have 30. 

IF I START OVER, here's what will likely happen:
1. I will create the new journal and
    a. transfer comm ownerships/modships
    b. create a new tagging system in the new journal for mems
    c. sort through the current mems and decide what I want to keep.
    d. track all my old posts on spn_storyfinders, as that is important to me. 
    e. repost last years minibang, and see if I can repost in the comm. 
2. I'll add a few of the friends and comms I definitely want to keep.
3. I'll make an announcement post, so that anyone who I may have forgotten to add in step 2 will know     and add me.
4. My journal will be more Glee themed, as that is what I am more involved with these days.
5. I may repost some of my fics to my journal, but not all of them.

As much as it will suck to loose all my comments in my stuff, I think the benefits would outweigh the costs. Thoughts, f-listies?

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

The SOPA Boycotts: One Single Post

Originally posted by morgandawn at The SOPA Boycotts: One Single Post
Wil Wheaton blogged today about the MPAA directly threatening those politicians who came out against SOPA:

Reinforcing the fact that Chris Dodd really does not get what’s happening, and showing just how disgustingly corrupt the MPAA relationship is with politicians, Chris Dodd went on Fox News to explicitly threaten politicians who accept MPAA campaign donations that they’d better pass Hollywood’s favorite legislation… or else:
“Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake,”
It shows, yet again, that he just doesn’t get it. People were protesting not just because of the content of these bills, but because of the corrupt process of big industries like Dodd’s “buying” politicians and “buying” laws. To then come out and make that threat explicit isn’t a way to fix things or win back the public. It’s just going to get them more upset, and to recognize just how corrupt this process is."

Shortly after Chris Dodd made the statements, a petition was started to investigate whether the MPAA has engaged in bribery. Others are pointing out that as a recent Senator, Chris Dodd is not allowed to lobby until 2013 (or 2 years after leaving office).

And since there have been several posts about the Black March boycott and the SOPA Boycott, we've pulled all the info and the links into a public Google doc so you can link to only one post (and also link to it off LJ - the "Repost it to your journal" button only works on LJ.) And I am certain some of us could use a break from the constant reposting. ;-)

And last here is a great video that explains what the media industry has been trying to do since the creation of audio and video cassette recorders and why they are going to continue trying (like making it illegal to print a copy of a child's drawing to top your kids' birthday cake).
