Wikipedia’s SOPA Protest

While Wikipedia was blacked out for a day, I decided to go and twitter and see how people were reacting to the protest. Most seemed to be in support of it; some folks did contact their representatives (thank you), some others used it to brandish their web skills and spread word about how to circumnavigate it and others were just plain annoyed that they couldn’t use it. Some tweeted about the things they were about to look up, which made me realize that people use Wikipedia to search for some seriously specific things.
