Wikipedia’s Blackout

By | source: Jan 23rd, 2012

I doubt most of you don’t already know this, but last Wednesday Wikipedia shut down for the day along with reddit and others in protest of SOPA and PIPA. These two bills are supposed to stop the online pirating of music and movie. Unfortunately to do so would be a censorship of the internet and threatens several of our favorite sites, Megaupload being one of the first victims, having been shut down recently. It is scary to think that the government can come in and change the internet, what would Ron Swanson think?

If you are interested in learning more about these two bills you should Google it, unless they are no longer allowed to display the results. [via]
