Remembering The Day Wikipedia Went Dark (And The Internet Rose In Protest)
"Ten million people signed online petitions against SOPA. Eight million looked up their Congressional representatives' contact information on Wikipedia's directory and then went to the representatives' Web pages, inadvertently causing them to crash from all the traffic. Three million people emailed and one hundred thousand called their members of Congress to express their opposition to SOPA." Boston Review 01/18/13
