Wikipedia To Officially Join in SOPA Blackout
After much internal debate, Wikipedia Co-founder Jimmy Wales has decided to join Reddit, Red 5 Studios and others in the SOPA Blackout on January 18th.
While Reddit has been leading the charge in the January 18th SOPA Blackout, to protest the Washington sponsored bill that if passed, may very well break the internet, Wikipedia has been deliberating on whether or not to join up in the protest. However, Wikipedia Co-founder Jimmy Wales has now decided to take part in the protest and has confirmed so via his Twitter feed:
Wikipedia is by far the single biggest site to join the protest, with an average of 25 million unique users per day on its English site alone. It would be great if Facebook and Google were to join the protest, but as for now, we should assume that they will not and act accordingly. As Mr. Wales suggests, it would be great if everyone could finish their homework before the 18th, because otherwise, you might have to actually read the assigned text.
And we wouldn’t want that, would we?
