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.
