algorithmic modeling for Rhino
EDIT... The js blackout script is gone and the site is back to functioning normally. It seems even the Slingshot! Twitter component got involved today. ;)
Hello Grasshopper community,
This may not be 100% related to Grasshopper and Rhino... but in my mind it is a very important topic for this community to consider....
No doubt piracy and the protection of intellectual property is an important issue, but bills like SOPA and Protect IP threaten a free and open internet where ideas like Grasshopper, its plug-ins, and countless other fantastic design tools continue to thrive. The bills would set a precedent for United States government censorship of the internet as a matter of law... a precedent that could easily be abused. It also seems that other governments around the world area considering similar measures.
This is a global issue...
Tomorrow, my modest design and computation blog, The Proving Ground, will join the SOPA/PIPA protest with a blackout of content. Blogs of all types and subjects will be participating along with Reddit and Wikipedia. I encourage others, if you are of a similar mindset, to do the same.
You can read more about this subject here on my blog. (before it goes dark, of course)
A free and open internet is essential for innovative, community-driven technology, tools, and design.
Can you imagine an amazing gallery of Grasshopper computational content that looks like this?
