it's a way of looking at life through the 
wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, 
and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

"The Wikipedia blackout is over 
— and you have spoken.
More than 162 million people saw our 
message asking if you could imagine a world
without free knowledge.  You said no. 
You shut down Congress’s switchboards. 
You melted their servers. Your voice 
was loud and strong.  Millions of people have spoken
in defense of a free and open Internet."

that knows not victory nor defeat."
