January 18 could be dark

In protest of a Congressional vote concerning the Internet, several major Web sites will block and protest a potentially censoring bill.  This means for many of us who use the Internet for our daily business, school, and socializing we could experience a small taste of what could happen.

 

This could present a really neat lesson for your kids.  Research why these Web companies are protesting.  Read the bill. Discuss what censorship means and how you feel about this topic.  Use today as a teachable moment!
