Wikipedia will be down tomorrow for 24 hours

Jimmy Wales has announced that English version of Wikipedia will be down for 24 hours on 18th of January (tomorrow) as  a protest against SOPA, anti-piracy bills and Protect IP act. This decision was taken after voting done by Wikipedia community. Reddit has already announced that their site will be blacked tomorrow and Mozilla too is planning to to replace content on various sites with anti-SOPA messages for the day.

  1. I'm hoping wikipedia gets shut down for good. It's larded with fanboy biases and errors. Kids could then get back to doing real research rather than copying whats on wikipedia.
