The Internet Goes on Strike
THE INTERNET GOES ON STRIKE!On Wednesday, January 18, 2012, many internet websites went on strike to protest SOPA & PIPA. Websites like Wikipedia were unavailable while Google and others are censoring their logos.
Don't know what SOPA & PIPA are? Today is still a great day to learn about it! See NY Times, Wired Magazine, PC World, or NPR.
One of the things the Internet does best is entertain and maybe educate too. For example, The Day the LOLcats died is an excellent video deriding SOPA/PIPA. A comic take on how UE students are reacting to the blackout, see UE's own Dr. MacLeod's cartoon.
