Reddit Co-Founder Targets SOPA Sponsor with Crowd Funded Billboard

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s campaign to crowd fund a billboard in SOPA lead sponsor Congressman Lamar Smith’s (R-Texas) district has hit its goal of $15,000. The billboard will offer Smith a simple message: "Don’t Mess With the Internet." They used the Crowdtilt crowd funding service to fund the billboard idea.

"Blame Erik Martin (GM, reddit) and Holmes (co-founder, for giving us this idea," reads the CrowdTilt funding page.

Now that this little idea has funding, the project needs some content art:

"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 for helping coordinate the deal," the message continues.

Suggestions and contributions for the final art can be made on this reddit thread.
