That was part of what interested me; the way that events on Wikipedia,
and decisions made there, are now newsworthy events...stuff that merits
coverage. Of course that has happened in the past, but most frequently
it's been coverage of teens sexting, or men picking up 13-year-olds, or
sites being hacked....splashy stuff that often is more about the
sensation than actual relevance. This got noticed because of the
Scientology angle, but it's otherwise low-key enough, simple reporting
of a news event that might impact the reader. 5 years ago, it would have
been ignored or sensationalized....instead, it's a regular story,
reported upon as if it were a local court ruling.
I actually find that really refreshing, and an interesting measure of
'we have arrived'. It's not That Time yet, but it's an intimation of it.
There is more coming, if you could look at a history written 20,000 years
from now, there will be a short section on intellectual developments in
ancient times and two developments will be mentioned, Plato's Academy and
