Best explanation of SOPA Protest So Far

I will grant I am biased, as I am quoted extensively. But this article is the only one so far to try to dig past the "and then the Internet spontaneously rose up and self-organized" or the "Google did it." As the article reports, there was a lot of work and expertise that lay on giving the overall protest form and direction.

OTOH, there is an amusing spin off from so many "reasonable" people thinking that the "real" story is Google. Google has a lot more clout on the Hill this week.
