I love Wikipedia. Awesome site.
I think its great that they are protesting SOPA and PIPA with a blackout, but this also makes things somewhat inconvenient for anyone who needs it for research, education, procrastinating, falling into an internet black hole of link-after-link.
LifeHacker has an easy way to get around this today —
Your first plan of attack is simple: Since the blackout doesn’t happen until the page finishes loading, just try clicking your browser’s stop button (or press Escape) once the article is loaded but before the page goes dark.”
Great idea – so you can allow Wiki to fight the man… have your cake and eat it too!
