I need to get out more

The other night I had a dream that the government had declared that Wikipedia was the ultimate source of truth, and no-one was allowed to challenge its status as a factual source. The powers subscribed to Wikipedia were such that that if your Wikipedia page was updated with your obituary, you instantly died.

Instead of waking up in a blind panic about the controlling forces of a dystopian nightmare future, I was happy. My immediate thought was, “great, that immediately solves the resource and person identifier problem as everyone can use Wikipedia URIs”.

I definitely need to get out more.
