Blackout Wednesday

Two bills that are currently going through US Congress — SOPA in the House of Representatives and PIPA in the Senate. These are internet censorship bills that could destroy the World Wide Web as we know it and hamper our freedom of speech. Even though this is happening in America, these bills have far-reaching repercussions for the web as a whole. There are many companies against SOPA, such as Google, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and today we are joining the protest.
