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.

Anyone else notice that wikipedia's blackout was a javascript page modification, the pages were still served up and easily accessed without javascript.

Guess they didn't want to sacrifice their SEO stats for the blackout.

php.net blacked out their front page, but not the internal pages.

I didn't see many other blackouts among my common sites other than osnews,
