A World where Legislation comes Before Free Knowledge? No Thanks.
Have any of you tried to go on Wikipedia today? If so, you might have been surprised to find that it has been blacked out, and will continue to be, for the rest of today, in protest against The US Congress, who are considering legislation (SOPA and PIPA) that would bring an end to free and open source Internet. Not only would Wikipedia be brought to it’s knees, but WordPress would probably also be closed down. To raise awareness, Wikipedia are having a 24 hour blackout, and I am in full support of them.
