In protest of #SOPA and #PIPA, #Wikipedia will “go black” on January 18th, and…

…well, I made exactly the same posting about Reddit earlier in the week, and some friends’ reactions varied between meh and pointless to who? and not going to change anything.

Somehow I think that a global blackout of Wikipedia:

This is going to be wow. I hope Wikipedia will melt phone systems in Washington on Wednesday. Tell everyone you know!.

…will get a few peoples’ attention, not least the teachers who will suffer the knock-on effects upon homework.

The only thing missing from my ticklist is for Google to invert the colour scheme on its homepage and I’ll be batting three for three.
