Wikipedia going on strike The world's most popular online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, is going on strike on Wednesday. The "knowledge blackout" is aimed at protecting the Internet - and the website's very existence - from online censorship.
I'm really curious how will the general public react? Will there be a backlash or will they understand that liberties triumphed by geeks in the past twenty year are being threatened by the old farts.
