Blackouts make little sense to me
Wikipedia has announced that it will blackout as part of a protest against the SOPA bill that is up for vote soon. The sites that are protesting the bill are going off line for 24 hours starting tomorrow. I think that is a dumb thing to do.

I think that the big sites out there will be fine if they go dark for 24 hours. Any small websites that need Google traffic to make a living that go dark could find themselves out of some rankings they had. Google's spiders could come a calling while they are offline.
I do agree that SOPA is a stupid bill and needs to be defeated. I just don’t see turning off your website as being a way to push those voting on the bill to see your way. “If passed, this legislation will harm the free and open Internet and bring about new tools for censorship of international websites inside the United States,” Wikimedia said in the statement. Do you think the move will have any affect?
