Ideas I grapple with

SOPA My Windows

On January 18 of 2012, Reddit, Wikipedia, and a handful of other websites are going offline to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).  Without Wikipedia, many students will have to actually do research.  Some may even learn what a library is.  I know I will actually do my job rather than read about zebras.

Google and its services will remain online.  This a shame because some institutions would be utterly lost without Gmail and its services.  It is also a shame because this is the one chance for Hotbot, Lycos, and Ask Jeeves to make a comeback.
