Worcester activists get Globe shoutout for SOPA protests

Worcester’s own Tiffiniy Cheng and Holmes Wilson, aka Fight for the Future, get some well-deserved recognition in today’s Globe for helping kick-start and coordinate the (so far) successful battle against SOPA. (The small FFTF team has included various other Worcesterites as well.)

Fight for the Future came up with the idea of an online demonstration more than two months ago, which evolved into last week’s event. It is also credited with helping to organize businesses and Web users against the legislation, which until then appeared to be speeding through Congress. It also built some of the software that allowed websites to go dark.

The T&G seems to have missed this local angle until today; Womag has been on it since November.

(Might as well point to this interview with Holmes from 508 last year.)
