Default Sites going down/dark tomorrow

Haven't heard much on SOPA here. (though its all over everywhere else)

THe long and the short of it its a crazy bill the US is trying to put though. Ostensibly to stop pirating, though many say its not going to dent that. But it will give the gov a lot more control... and it has many bad 'side effects'

What sites will you miss tomorrow.

Of course I will miss Reddit. And I hope I don't need to wikipedia anything as its going down too.

Are chazzers aware of this issue? Even though its a US issue it will have global effects.

On November 15, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Zynga, eBay, Mozilla, Yahoo, AOL, and LinkedIn wrote a letter to key members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, saying SOPA poses "a serious risk to our industry's continued track record of innovation and job creation, as well as to our nation's cybersecurity." Yahoo has reportedly quit the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over the organization's enthusiastic support for SOPA.

The European Parliament adopted a resolution last week stressing "the need to protect the integrity of the global Internet and freedom of communication by refraining from unilateral measures to revoke IP addresses or domain names." Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, said in a message on Twitter last week that we "need to find a better solution than #SOPA."
