Shortly after Colbert's  <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFT4OfdnVpU> report
on "wikiality," I checked  <http://www.wikipedia.com/> Wikipedia to see if
they had a page for it yet. After all, they had
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truthiness> truthiness. No entry yet, but they
did mention wikiality as the Word segment in a summary table of Colbert
episodes, which was groovy.

I checked again today, and sure enough. Type "wikiality" into Wikpedia's
search bar and it doesn't quite go to a page dedicated to wikiality, but
does resolve to this page on
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_in_popular_culture> Wikipedia in
popular culture. Wikiality is a subsection there, alongside many other
interesting tidbits.

The page for  <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colbert_Report> The Colbert
Report has changed, too. The big, useful table summarizing elements from
each episode went elsewhere. In its place, sort of, is a page on
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colbert_Report_recurring_elements> The
Colbert Report recurring elements.

Interesting. And very fun.
