Revolution on the internet, or will laws like SOPA and PIPA take them down?

Ever since I got my first computer, and started using a modem (Modulator-Demodulator) to dial up to other computers and communicate using BBS’s (Bulletin Board Systems), I’ve thought the next revolution, and future of politics and business would be a collaborative effort done through on-line communication.
