Wikipedia BLACKOUT!

Today, Wikipedia announced that they will go on a 24hr. blackout. This means the site will not be available at all! This is in protest of the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act). If these bills are enacted through the US legislation, the freedom and uses of the internet will be drastically cut down and limited. Wondering what SOPA or PIPA is in even more detail? Click away at this link right here! It’s informative, but much more formal than some silly old blog. Other social media sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc..) are also rumored to possibly have a blackout, but not necessarily today.  What do you think? Is it worth it, why or why not? Go ahead and comment… we know you want to.
