Tom here. Many of you may have run across the “blackout” that took place on a few sites a little over a week ago. Wikipedia being the giant that was (kind of) unavailable…with many others you may or may not have known about. This was cool because it raise awareness about something that a lot of times only nerds really voice their opinions on…but this was a big one.

Many of you may still be kind of asking what this whole “SOPA” (and PIPA) thing is all about. This is a pretty good TED Talk that talks about it. Please watch it.
