    Wiki blackout hits Phuket at high noon

    PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette would like to inform its readers that English Wikipedia will be shutting down at noon today (Phuket time) to protest proposed legislation in the United States.

    The proposed Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the US House of Representatives and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the US senate “if passed, would seriously damage the free and open Internet, including Wikipedia,” wrote Sue Gardner, Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation.

    This will be the first time that the information giant has staged a public protest of this nature.

    I got hit by this. I went to look something up tonight on wiki and got sent to the black screen. All because the US is trying to pass two completely retarded pieces of leglislation that could totally screw up the Internet world wide.
