Wiki Rewrites History

History will be kind to me - for I intend to wiki it. -- WinstonChurchill

Weeny, weedy, wiki. -- Julius Caesar (Caesar is describing three generations of group authoring tools, according to those with the original manglescripts).

I disagree with what you say, Sir, but I would die for our right to wiki it. -- MrVoltaire

(As an odd side-note, Voltaire didn't actually say that, or even the quote that that's based on. It was made up by someone who was doing a biography of Voltaire as something he might have said, and it just caught on. And that's how wiki got its name. Fascinating. So who did originally say or write "I never approved either the errors of his book, or the trivial truths he so vigorously laid down. I have, however, stoutly taken his side when absurd men have condemned him for these same truths."?)
