International Panic Day
Yea, you guessed it, today is officially International Panic Day. I've been kind of panicking over what to blog about, but thanks to my panic I now have a blog entry for the day. This reminds me of the Douglas Adams book Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If you haven't read it or saw the movie, do so, but for the purposes of this blog, in it it contains a book that has most of life's answers in it and on the back is printed "Don't Panic".
I watched the movie a few weeks ago and was thinking how nice it'd be if we had a book we could turn to for such answers if we ever wanted to know something trivial. Well, we kinda do, although it's not a book it's a site... called Wikipedia. If you ever need to know some obscure fact about a country or an expired device, you can likely find it there. What we've (I say we because it's created by everyone) done is created an ingenious site that is similar to Douglas Adam's Guide to the Galaxy. What an ingenious idea that has been put in production by Mr. Jimmy Wales, so on this day we don't have to panic.
By the way, International Panic day is not on Wikipedia, it may not exist.
