The Internet Goes on Strike Today



In case you haven't heard, today major websites such as Reddit and Wikipedia have blacked out in protest of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act.) Other major websites have taken smaller steps in protest. Tumblr is giving users the option of blacking out their individual blogs for the day, and 4Chan has censorship bars across all content. While this is certainly frustrating (especially for someone who Reddits all day during class) it's only a taste of what could happen to the internet if these make it through.

  1. I would only be familiar with Google and Wiki, so I went to their sites and took a pic of it. Just to remember.

    (I forgot that I had an account for blogger already, the Blue Barrel refers to the 55-gal drums that horse people use out in their arenas for horses to run around, or knock over.. etc.)
