Today’s Blackout List and Examples of Protest

Per yesterdays post about the Jan 18th online protest against SOPA and PIPA, I went around looking for sites that were blacked out and compiled a list of popular ones and their traffic. Out of the top 100 highest traffic sites in the World, 7 of those are participating in some form for this protest. Along with those is are several hundred other websites also participating.
