Apparently, Shutting Down Wikipedia Gets People’s Attention

The Internet tells me that U.S. politicians are changing their votes on SOPA and PIPA. From The Guardian:

The protest gained fresh momentum Wednesday when senator Marco Rubio of Florida withdrew his support for Pipa. Rubio is a rising Republican star who is seen as a possible vice president pick this year and a future presidential candidate. Rubio said that since the introduction of the bill “legitimate concerns” had been expressed about the impact it could have on access to the internet “and about a potentially unreasonable expansion of the federal government’s power to impact the internet.” On his Facebook page, Rubio wrote: “Congress should listen and avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences.”

I went to Wired’s website after seeing that story’s image showing Wired’s “censored” their home page. Wow, well done.
