Hope you're not trying to do homework today. Or buy a motorcycle. Both Wikipedia and Craigslist blocked themselves to protest the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), two bills getting close to votes in Congress.
Other sites showed protests of their own, including Google, which put a black "censored" bar over the logo on its search page.
What impact will these protests have on these laws, and on the Web itself? Will we soon be seeing more sites take themselves offline to draw attention to other causes?
We have two great guests to discuss the protests today: Our own Declan McCullagh, who's been covering these issues for CNET News; and Trevor Timm, who actually has the title of "Activist" at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
