History of the web, world wide all over the USA

The people who control Wikipedia have a quarrel with a piece of domestic legislation in the United States. To complain, they are going to shut down English Wikipedia all over the world tomorrow.

Written something for Wikipedia? (I haven't.)  Believe it is an online resource written by you and created by its users?  Wikipedia wants you to indulge that notion -- until it want to play in American domestic politics.  

Maybe the day after you can feel like the internet belongs to you again. And all those contributors can have their content back.

Update, January 18:  But apparently it's still there if you know where to look.  The Internet defeats attempts to manipulate the internet.
