SOPA support dwindling?

Good to see that SOPA is losing support in Washington according to the White House:

While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.

For a good breakdown on the problems with SOPA check out Jeffrey Zeldman's article on A List Apart.

Good quote on being wrong from Seth Godin:

Politicians, of course, are terrible at this. They are never wrong, apparently, and when they are, spin instead of admitting it. Which not only hurts their trustworthiness, it prevents them from learning anything.

Two elements of successful leadership: a willingness to be wrong and an eagerness to admit it.
