To be honest, I was a bit surprised that they actually went through with it. But it's official: Wikipedia is down.

Google has given the movement a hat-tip as well, in the form of a doodle:

Reddit's also involved in the blackout.

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000067904 video interview.

It's interesting to see the RIAA and even Rupert Murdoch's comments on this. Best quote from it..

Quote:
"Why is it that when Republicans and Democrats need to solve the budget and the deficit, there's deadlock, but when Hollywood lobbyists pay them $94 million dollars to write legislation, people from both sides of the aisle line up to co-sponsor it?"

I wish facebook had done SOMETHING. Even just a 5-second wait before you can go anywhere would be something. Click a profile, see a SOPA message for 5-seconds before it goes there.

I'm kind of disappointed at the lack of other websites joining in. I mean for it to make a difference I think a LOT of sites needed to black out.

If facebook OR google had participated, even partially, in the blackout, it would have made huge waves. Instead, google posted a logo, and facebook ignored it. I still think a 5-second wait with a message for clicking something would have been enough for those two sites.

Me no impress. You can still go on wiki, just cancel the loading before it redirects. It's pretty obvious they did it this way so people could still use it.
