Why My Website Won’t Be Here Tomorrow

Published on January 17, 2012 by

Congress is considering two ill-conceived bills, SOPA in the House and PIPA in the Senate, that would cause problems for the security of the Internet. As part of a “strike” to protest these bills, my website will be be gone tomorrow for twelve hours, and will instead forward to a site about stopping these bills. Mine will not be the only site on strike tomorrow: the English portion of Wikipedia will black out for 24 hours.

(I’m using the SOPA Strike plugin for WordPress to automatically black out my site and then restore it afterwards.)
