So where did Wikipedia go? That’s a question millions of people are asking this morning as they find the popular online encyclopedia has gone dark.
Wikipedia, Craigslist, Reddit and other websites have blacked out in protest against two anti-piracy bills in Congress — the House’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), and the Senate’s Protect IP Act (PIPA) — that are pitting the entertainment industry against the tech world.
