Reddit, a very popular website similar to Digg, will be protesting SOPA on January 18 by hosting a blackout, where they will block off all access to the website. If you go to the website between 8AM and 8PM, you will be shown a message about SOPA and how terrible it is, as well as a live-stream of the "House hearing where Internet entrepreneurs and technical experts (including reddit co-founder Alexis “kn0thing” Ohanian) will be testifying." You can read the whole blog post about this blackout here. Hopefully this blackout will get more people involved in protesting this atrocious bill.
