Wikipedia, Others, Dark on Wednesday

If you are trying to find your favorite website tomorrow, and it isn't there, it's not the apocalypse, but a coordinated protest over Internet legislation.  Wikipedia, Wordpress, and other sites say they won't be available tomorrow to protest SOPA, the incorrectly named Stop Online Piracy Act.  For a full list of participants and more info on the topic, see:  http://sopastrike.com/.  The Icanhazcheezburger sites are participating so there will be no cutely captioned cat pictures available on the web tomorrow.  No LOL cats.  No Failbook.  Life will be grim tomorrow.
