Don't mess with the Internet -- Billboard in Lamar Smith's home district
Alexis Ohanian started the campaign

We're having a party here at SXSW on Monday and breadpig thought it'd be fun to raise some funds to advertise on a billboard for a month in Lamar Smith's home district, which includes Austin & San Antonio, proclaiming "Don't mess with the Internet." Blame Erik Martin (GM, reddit) and Holmes (co-founder, FightForTheFuture.org) for giving us this idea.

I'm counting on some great concept art to come from /r/politics and the Internet at large, but we want to be sure we've got the funds, too. Kudos to Adstruc.com for helping coordinate the deal.

We will be using suggestions & contributions from this reddit thread for the final art.
