Tuesday Links: SOPA Blackout & Deals
Even though the House has purportedly backed off from bringing SOPA to the floor, the idea is still percolating on Capital Hill. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still plans to bring PIPA to the floor for a vote. Tomorrow, many sites on the internet are going black including Wikipedia. Twitter CEO has lashed out, saying that it is a silly and foolish decision:
Via Twitter, Radar correspondent Alex Howard asked Costolo, Google’s Eric Schmidt and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, whether they would have the ‘cojones’ to follow in Wikipedia’s protesting footsteps. “That’s just silly. Closing a global business in reaction to single-issue national politics is foolish,” Costolo replied
