Weird thing about Wikipedia protesting SOPA is this:

They're preventing people from looking up "SOPA" on wikipedia and forming an opinion, kinda defeats the point doesn't it?

I think it was effective. It caught me by surprise and was like a slap in the face. i had to think of other sources. While that wasn't exactly a hardship it made me think about what else I would be missing.

I looked up SOPA last night. Googled it and it linked Wiki. Do they not have it now?

Yesterday the only thing we could see on wiki was a link to find your local congressman.

Maybe it was just in the U.S. ?





......so, apparently the Italian cruise ship Captain tripped and fell into a life boat.


No, seriously, that's what he says.

I know mate, just pointing out the irony - Whenever people want to know what something is, they usually look it up on wiki

Wiki is up and running again for me, though it also worked yesterday, just google what you want and click on "Cached" instead of the link itself

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act

Cached version:
