No SOPA for you (What I Learned This Week)

• Wednesday's internet blackout and "protests" succeeded in stopping SOPA/PIPA. For now. 

• Despite what looks like a very aggressive EULA, Apple's new (and free) iBook Author has a lot of potential for portfolios, case studies, annual reports and other kinds of publications beyond textbooks. 

Twitter bought Summify, a very useful service I use that summarizes your twitter stream. I am concerned that the purchase will de-evolve the service in the same way that the fantastic Twettie app became the current Twitter app without any of the great features remaining.
