Red alert, World Wide Weboids! Wikipedia went down this morning — and though some functionality has been restored, EW staffers report that the site is still acting in a curiously aberrant manner, or “being weird.” To quote Twitter user @lexcanroar: “WHERE IS ALL THE KNOWLEDGE? WHAT ARE WE TO DO WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE?”
Oh, Lex, I just don’t know. Unless anyone has a copy of Encarta ’04 on CD-ROM that the entire Internet can borrow, we’ll just have to sit tight for several excruciating minutes — tens of minutes, even — while we wait for the Wikimedia Foundation’s noble geekburgers to fix the problem.
In the meantime, let’s deal with this PopWatch Confessional-style: What were you trying to look up when you discovered that Earth’s favorite resource was offline? I’ll get the ball rolling — I wanted to read the Harvey Weinstein page to see if he has any funny nicknames. (For work, naturally.)
Your turn! Be honest; we’ve all looked at that List of Fictional Robots at one point or another.
