Wikipedia was not sure whether it would go the way of others and blackout the entire site. But it did.
The entire English version of the online encyclopedia, which brings in over 400 million unique users monthly, went dark today. All pages were unavailable for viewing. The mobile site is not affected, however.
Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, announced the move on Twitter earlier this week. The English version has 3.8 million articles. Other languages will "make their own decisions", Wales said.
