Supporting the Strike with Web 2.0!

The strike has hit the social networking sites. As the hacker kids say, the AMPTP is going to get "pwned."

There is an active video blog team covering pickets and getting the writers side of the story to the people. "Why We Fight" is must viewing! Send it to every human you've ever met. There's also an official WGA YouTube page.

Got pictures from pickets? Post them to Flickr and tag them with WGA and Strike.

Got lots of Facebook friends? Invite them to join the new United Hollywood Facebook Group. Please, keep the zombie biting to a minimum.

And your newest MySpace friend just set up a page. Put it in your top 8.

Don't forget to submit stories to Digg.com - And you guys might add some 'digg this' buttons to each of your blog entries, too.

Done! I will do my best to promote this blog on mine and on MySpace. I can't speak for anyone else, but I do know that there are so many television and film fans outside of the industry who support you 100%, and we will do what we can from the periphery.

I support you all the way, but please don't ever use the word "pwned" again. ;)

I hope this is okay. I couldn't find a blog banner to show support, so I made one.

If anyone knows of an authorized one, let me know and I'll gladly replace it.

Fans can also replace their online avatars with avatars that support the strike.

Hi! I'm a fan in support of the writers, and I'm trying to make sure everyone on my LJ, JF, IJ, Myspace, and Facebook (what? the internet is the future!) knows what they can do to support the strike. Quick question - do writers receive residuals for the sale of episodes on sites like iTunes or Amazon?

There are some great pro-writer/pro-strike icons here and here.

With the substance and quality of most of what comes from this country’s entertainment industry on a daily basis, I for one hope that the writers strike remains permanent.

Have a nice day Hollywood.

CHICHEN-ITZA EQUINOCCIO
The Maya chronicles record that in 1221 a revolt and civil war broke out, and archeological evidence seemed to confirm that the wooden roofs of the great market and the Temple of the Warriors were burned at about this date. Chichen Itza went into decline as rulership over Yucatán shifted to Mayapan
