[This is an old post. SEE ALSO: The most recent blog post about this case.]
Last month I joined other social media researchers and the ACLU to file a lawsuit against the US Government to protect the legal right to conduct online research. This is newly relevant today because a community of devs interested in public policy started a petition in support of our court case. It is very nice of them to make this petition. Please consider signing it and sharing this link.
PETITION: Curiosity is (not) a crime
For more context, see last month’s post: Why I Am Suing the Government.
