The only corporation that is protesting SOPA (at least my knowledge) is Wikipedia, which won't cause very many tears tomorrow. Do you know of more that will be boycotting tomorrow?

I've been on Google for a bit today, and even using Google Chrome, and all seems fine. Maybe I am not utilizing it correctly?

I guess I spoke too soon. Everything is hard to access today. Might be a bad day to be a moderator!

They blacked out their logo.

I tried to access Wikipedia a dozen times yesterday and I knew it was blacked out.

I use it everyday.

Wikipedia was the big one, and it was the only one I found that was inaccessable. Craigslist, google, wired.com all had some sort of blackout or redacted words, but you could choose to see it normally.

This is a day too late for you Austin, but you could have used Wikipedia from your smartphone like normal, the mobile site was working fine.

Here's a good list:
