Of all the posts lately of the "can you believe its been that long ago" sort, this takes my cake.
Tomorrow is Wikipedia's 10th birthday.
I'm uncertain how to take that. Wiki seems to have been around forever, yet it sprung up overnight.
As will the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy", Wiki has "supplanted all comers as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many ommissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least widely inaccurate" it is easy to use, albeit without a Don't Panic notice.
Like Google, Wiki usually has an answer to any querry. Unlike Google, it's generally best taken with a grain of salt.
Happy birthday Wiki, may you improve with age.
Happy Birthday also, to Lou of The Archers at The Larches.
