The Internet is going on strike on January 18th.  You can help by driving contacts and readers to Congress. The blackout is from at 8AM EST and end at 8PM EST.  You can read more and join the strike here: http://sopastrike.com/

ProPublica has put together an interactive SOPA Opera with a database that keeps track of where members of Congress stand. Findings are based on two factors: whether a member is a sponsor of the proposed bills, and each member's voting record on the current bills' precursors and alternatives.
