    The NY Tech Meetup called an emergency meeting of its 20,000 members today, at the offices of New York Senators Schumer and Gillibrand. We’re here to discuss SOPA, PIPA and the potential threats that they are to the United States’ thriving technology culture.

    We’re live blogging the event, as well as following the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag of #nytmSOS. Please feel free to submit your questions or concerns, and we’ll address them as readily as possible.
