Blog Blackout

Like The Bloggess, I'm not tech savvy enough to actually black out the blog (and be able to retrieve it from blackness tomorrow), so here's some info:

Darth Vader on youtube

Google's black box

How to SOPA strike if you 1) can read instructions and 2) are not technology challenged

Reuters saying Facebook, etc. did not join in

Adrian Hon explains the complexity & international ramifications with a page from the Gutenberg bible

A survival guide to today

Wikipedia today

I love you, Wikipedia.

I like your black square of solidarity.

Anybody besides Kim J Kimmel having trouble commenting on my blog, or seeing other people's comments?

Don't worry, I see the silliness in asking the question here, and will ask it again in the blog tomorrow, after the Blog Blackout. If I remember...

I couldn't get in by specific post, but by the main blog title.

I tried to sign up for a blog blackout, but it isn't a google kind of thing I guess. But it does seem that if everyone followed it, no one would be able to report on it and it wouldn't achieve it's mission.

Hmm, thanks, Seana. I don't know why that happens sometimes when I am reading other people's blogs, but I solve it by going to the main blog header, too.

Kim's difficulty commenting started before my "blog blackout" and today's various blackouts, and commenting trouble does seem to come and go.
