This repository is my take on "going dark" for the January 18 blackout to protest SOPA.

You can use the provided index.html as your site's homepage on January 18 as one possible way to participate.

It looks like this.

Alternately, you can use the provided sopa.js to append the code to an existing page. The current site will be vaguely visible through the background. As a quick hack, the append will only happen if the user's date is set to the 18th. That way, the protest will automatically end without having to change code.

I felt inspired by the "going dark" theme. I've been calling my representatives in Congress, but this gave me another outlet for my frustration with this legislation. I place this code in the public domain. I require no attribution.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
