Looking at Wikipedia’s black banner and thinking of staying off the Internet till Friday in protest of SOPA and PIPA. Let’s see how long I last
It turns out I lasted about 14 hours without using the Internet, signed Google’s 7-million signature petition, and had my own Internet blackout for nothing. It still felt nice to make a difference. I now consider January 18 a day that will go down in history.
