The school shooting that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary was a big deal. The country has been left reeling in the aftermath. Websites will be participating in a moment of silence Friday by blacking out in a manner similar to the SOPA protests. Websites that want to participate can place a small piece of JavaScript code.

If you're a website owner and would like to participate, the Web Moment of Silence page has a sign-up form where you can be e-mailed the code snippet. The moment of silence will take place on Friday at 9:30am EST. The webpage-based tribute will be able to be closed, unlike the SOPA protest, so that normal browsing can continue.
