No movies this weekend
By Dave Winer on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 11:03 AM.

Now that the big blackout is behind us, does it make sense for us to be buying the products of corporate media here in the US? #

No, in fact it doesn't. That's where the pain will really make sense. Let Hollywood have their share.  #

And by the way, don't just write to your Congressperson. They're just the employees. The people who pull the strings aren't just the entertainment execs either. They're hired to play the bad guys. The ones who want to somehow stay above the rape of the net are the stars. If they get an idea that their reps are suffering because of SOPA, they're going to act fast. That's how they make their money. It's their images that belong on this campaign, not the ones no one has heard of. Congressmen come and go. But Matt Damon wants to be making movies for decades to come.  #

Go through the list of actors nominated for Oscars this year. Go to actors featured at Sundance right now. That's who we ought to be contacting. And if they don't respond, let's make them famous for that.  #
