A Cat Signal in the San Francisco sky?

Last night, if you were near the Embarcadero area of San Francisco, you might have seen an interesting sight:

Marking the launch of the Internet Defense League, (and not coincidentally going up the night of the Dark Knight Rises premiere), the Cat Signal is meant as a symbolic way to bring together folks from across the internet to defend the open Web and push to make it better.

Launched from the roof of our San Francisco office, we heard remarks from Mozilla’s Mark Surman & Mitchell Baker, from rabble-rouser and activist Eliabeth Stark, and from Craig Newmark.

It was a seriously awesome event — if you haven’t already signed up as a member of the league, do so now! And if you want to create your own IDL member page, we created a great project in Thimble to get you started.

A couple more pictures from last night:
