Wikipedia


"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."

  "Far better is it to dare mighty things, 
to win glorious triumphs, 
even though checkered by failure...
than to rank with those poor spirits 
who neither enjoy nor suffer much, 
because they live in a gray twilight 
that knows not victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
