Friends, Quick request: Wikipedia is considering going dark to protest SOPA and PIPA, the Internet censorship bills. It'd be huge news, jar rank-and-file Internet users out of complacency, and serve as a turning point in the effort to beat these bills. Several sites are considering going dark next week -- Reddit's already pledged to do so, but to have the impact it'll take to kill SOPA and PIPA, we need much broader support. A blackout by Wikipedia could be what finally kills these bills. Will you click here to urge Wikipedia to go on strike to protest censorship? http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/wiki_sign/?referring_akid=.45919.DIgdOG&... Thanks!
