ok, so here it is. this is the only thing I’ll post tomorrow. I know my blog ain’t a big site or whatever, but I’m going black. SOPA (and don’t forget PIPA) is ridiculous and every single person who enjoys internet should go black too. Let’s fight for what we think is right!
A Taste Of Thing To Come? of the Day: Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has just announces via Twitter that he will be joining the anti-SOPA blackout planned for this Wednesday, January 18th.
Starting at midnight EST, the English version of Wikipedia will go dark for 24 hours, crippling student reports everywhere, and hopefully bringing much-needed attention to the Internet killing bill and its congressional sibling, PIPA.
Even though SOPA was shelved over the weekend after President Obama expressed opposition to the bill, it is still expected to reemerge.
Reddit’s Internet blackout initiative, which was officially unveiled last week, has been steadily picking up steam, with multiple Internet giants announcing their intentions to follow suit.
A list of sites that have confirmed their participation can be found here.
