Web sites going down Wednesday 8am – 8pm

I heard WordPress is going down from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm today, as part of a protest about a bill in Congress that is purportedly about protecting intellectual property on the web, but could and will be used to monitor the Internet in a way that will infringe on our First Amendment rights. It’s 4:41 am and I went to the WordPress home page to see if they mentioned it. Took the attached screen shot. It certainly looks like they’re going to participate.

Thanks to GA for the heads up.

    Noon … it looks like the protest is more about wearing the black badge than actually going “black” (off line).
