I just went to Wikipedia and they have a big banner on the english version of the site stating that they will be blacking out for 24 hours. Is Parallax going to participate in this? Does anyone have a list of websites that will be participating?

My theme park fan forum site bgwfans.com/forum/index.php (bgwfans.com) has the link to SOPA site. But, they didn't say they will be blacking out for 24 hours.

Yea I saw it too........ its too bad Wiki pulling the plug for a day is not as BAM! as google doing it .. But at least its a start .
Lets Hope this blackout will snowball in to a larger blackout soon .........

I can not and will not speak on behalf of Parallax . But I doubt they will do any thing..

It seems that Wikipedia's attempt at a blackout is a bit weak. You can go to their main page and perform a search, and it will take you to the page you requested. It then immediately takes you to their SOPA blackout page. However, if you hit the browser stop button before you get redirected you will just stay on the normal wiki page.

It is pretty weak as there is only one setting to change in I.E. to get around the blackout page. But I applaud them for doing it to make a point that some people may have otherwise missed.

Excellent video Ray! Thanks for sharing. This is one of the best explanations of the potential impact the SOPA/PIPA bills.

Apparently all the noise today has changed some minds on voting :)
