Mid-day Extra: Will students miss Wikipedia today?

Jeremy Hobson and Adriene Hill Jan 18, 2012

Now back to the Wikipedia blackout, which is probably affecting some people more than others.

Think students — working on their homework.

In today’s Mid-day Extra, we look at all those students who might not be so used to cracking those physical books for their book reports.

Here to talk with us about whether today’s blackout might lead to a few late papers is Jeff Young, technology editor for the Chronicle of Higher Education.
