Amazing! They are calling it a political coming of age.

“This is the first real test of the political strength of the Web, and regardless of how things go, they are no longer a pushover,” said Professor Wu, who is the author of “The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires.” He added, “The Web taking a stand against one of the most powerful lobbyers and seeming to get somewhere is definitely a first.”– The New York Times

What some websites looked today in a day of protest. Fascinating.

Google asking us to 'Tell Congress: Please don't censor the web!'

 

No Wiki for 24 hours. Just glad I didn't have to look up anything. "Wikipedia, run by a nonprofit organization, is going further than most sites by actually taking material offline"--NYT

 

And even wordpress is involved in the protest. Currently, the weblog is one of the most popular for leading websites and blogs in the cyber-world (including this one)
