Wow.  The Sendai earthquake and tsunami happened yesterday and already a wiki page has been created and VERY well populated and referenced. Last night when the quake happened it was all over Twitter, as is expected now a days. In fact, I knew about the tsunami warning for California (through Twitter) long before it got here.  But the fact that a well populated page on wiki can come up so fast ( and still growing) is amazing.  This is not new.  Wiki sites in regard to the various revolutions in North Africa generated wiki pages quickly as well, but I think the depth of detailed information, reference and media is what makes this particular event note worthy.   Sure, this observation is not breaking news by any means, but its good to step back every now and again and realize.  Hey, we live in some pretty fast times.
