Got this in my Email today:
On Jan. 18th there is going to be an all-out strike on the internet. Websites across the internet are going dark in protest of the internet censorship bills in Congress, SOPA and PIPA.
Some of the biggest sites in the world are participating: Reddit, Mozilla. And some others may join (e.g. a leading micro-blogging platform and a popular collaboratively-written encyclopedia), but they need a nudge. If we can get them to join this will be EPIC.
Now, I don’t know what “going dark” actually means, if it’s some automated process for the sites that signed up or not, But Here’s my plan regardless: When I go to bed on the 17th, I’m going to Make everything on this site black. The Text, the background, the banner header! EVERYTHING!
Spread the word: SOPA AND PIPA MUST BE STOPPED!
