Internet & Networking Big news from Capitol Hill in Washington DC today: House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa has said that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has been "shelved" in the House of Representatives, meaning it has been put on indefinite hold until a consensus about the act can be reached. Sadly, SOPA's counterpart in the Senate, the Protect IP Act (PIPA) will still be pushed forward, meaning we must remain vigilant. Despite all of this, Wikipedia has announced it will join the blackout coming Wednesday.

Just a helpful note. Special extensions exist for Chrome, Chromium, and Firefox specifically designed to block images of Jimmy's ubiquitous and annoying stare. I've just upgraded mine, as I suspect we're in for a run of exceptionally intense and widespread staring over the coming weeks.
