Steph is a 2011 graduate of Gettysburg College (majored in history, minored in Civil War Era studies) and current graduate student at Pratt Institute (library science with a focus in Archival Studies) who loves baseball, sports anime, writing, drawing, Rogue Squadron, cars (and Top Gear), comedy (especially its history, the British variety, and cosplaying one comedian in particular) and her cats and Old English Sheepdogs. Fond of Stanford even though she doesn't go there. Has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Created the 30-Day Baseball Meme. One time she made a music video about Buster Keaton's love affair with trains. Since she's an archivist-in-training, she often preserves things on her own. See her scans here. This is the most quality tag on her blog.

Author of the webcomic The Historians, the excuse to draw dead comedians called Comedian Heaven, and Londinium, a novel in the making set in 1863 London. Scriptwriter for the webcomic Home By Now, a story about time travel, music, history and general hijinks (meet the incredible artist here!). Tell her your birthday and she'll draw you a present!

Very occasionally posts about herself when she's not posting about baseball, dead people, Top Gear or her pets.

The problem with not posting on Tumblr is that the folks in Congress aren’t going to see that. Even if hundreds of thousands of us don’t post, in the end this is still just a microblogging site that they’re not going to pay much attention to.

What we can do to get the government’s attention:

Write to our Congress representatives. If we actually flood them with letters regarding CISPA, they’ll see that we’re concerned. It’s not like they check our Tumblrs constantly, so they’re not going to know when we decide to protest them by not posting. If we write to them, though, it goes to their mailbox or inbox and they’ll see it.

Protest in person. Protesting by not posting on a blog is one thing, but protesting in person gets people’s attention, especially when a big group of you is there together. Make sure you’re seen - and be peaceful about it - and you’ll get your message across better than just not posting on your Tumblr for one day.

Write blog posts about why CISPA is hurting us instead of saying nothing. In this case, we actually need to spread the word, and being silent isn’t going to help us on this matter. If we write about how CISPA is hurtful and share each other’s posts so they’re seen by as many people as possible, we’ll be getting the word out better than if we say nothing.

Let’s get the government’s attention. Make some noise, Tumblr.
