Wikipedia Is Blacked Out

Earlier today Wikipedia made its point—and how!

Imagine one indeed.
[Screen grab from here.]

Since I use it only occasionally, Wikipedia's 24-hour blackout is just a minor inconvenience. But for a long while there I couldn't remember what it was I did on the Internet to look up and learn about things before the advent of that website. It only goes to show how much—limited use and all—Wikipedia had become part of my online routine. Before today at least, it was just…there, much in the same way that FM radio was just…there for me for a good long time until just a few years ago, if that makes sense.
