Online Publishers Plan a Moment of Silence for Sandy Hook Victims

Petition urges those on the Web to observe and abstain from email, social networks


Last January during the SOPA debates in Washington, many publishers and websites joined forces to black out their Web pages for a cause. Tomorrow, there's a similar plan for a much different, more poignant cause.

One week after the unspeakable shootings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., a national moment of silence has been planned at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow to remember the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Using the activist site Causes.com, more than 115,000 have pledged to observe the moment of silence, including celebrities and Web personalities from MC Hammer to Twitter founder Jack Dorsey.
