Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge!

Just now, I was looking for information of Sunny Hill. I searched them on google, and I clicked on Wikipedia link. I was suprised to see this on my screen.

Then, I search for more infos on google, tumblr and twitter. IT WAS REALLY SHOCKING TO ME. SOPA, PIPA OR WHATEVER 'PA' ARE TRYING TO STOP THE SERVICE OF FREE AND OPEN INTERNET. Tbh, Google and Wikipedia are my biggest sources. These sites helped me a lot since school.

As quoted from The Daily What :
Internet Blackout of the Day: The Great Wikipedia Blackout of 2012 has begun.
Reddit, TwitPic, Mozilla, Mojang, and thousands of others will soon follow suit. The Internet is officially on strike! Why? Because the House and Senate are conspiring with the entertainment industry to break the Internet.
Make no mistake: SOPA has not been shelved. And a vote on PIPA is just around the corner. Luckily, hundreds of companies, charities, and notable individuals with strong moral character have joined forces to stop these dangerous Big Brother bills from moving forward.
The fight is far from over, but hopefully today’s blackout will help bring this important matter to the attention of folks who rely on the Internet for entertainment and education, but have so far remained oblivious to SOPA and PIPA and their harmful consequences.
If you absolutely must scab, here are a few useful links:
  • #altwiki: A collaborative crowd-sourcing alternative to Wikipedia.

As quoted from unknown :
SOPA Emergency IP list:         

So if these ass-fucks in DC decide to 
ruin the internet, here’s how to access your favorite sites
 in the event of a DNS takedown

        # News

        # Social media

        # Torrent sites

        # Social networking

        # Live Streaming Content

        # Television

        # Shopping

        # File Sharing

Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: 
Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either go to
 “run” or just search for “cmd.” 
Open it up, and type in “ping [website address],” 

Once you have the IP for a website, all you really 
need to do is enter it like you would 
a normal URL nd hit enter/press go. Typing in
should bring you to the front page of AO3,
 for example, just as typing “” 
should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. 
Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario 
which would involve you not being 
able to access the internet regularly, you should,
 save this list.
Dear Tumblr-ers, -ites, ettes, and whatever other things you may prefer,
Please reblog the crap out of this. Add to it if you feel there is stuff necessary but missing.
P.S. Thank you to the lovely who wrote this up.
As quoted from Twitter :
# If SOPA passes there is no meaning to the Internet anymore.
# If SOPA passes, there will be no more YouTube, Twitter, Google, Wikipedia, Facebook and many more sites you love to use!
