Want to still use Wikipedia?

So Wikipedia has begun its 24 hour blackout to protest the anti-piracy / internet censorship bill SOPA which is cool and all, but we all want to be able to use Wikipedia, right?

Well if you find yourself in need of some quick facts, simply Google whatever you want to find on Wikipedia with the word Wikipedia in your query (i.e. “Mountain Dew wikipedia). When you see the Wikipedia page in your search result click the double arrows to the right of the result which will open a page preview. Above the preview you should see a link that says ‘cached’. Click this and it will take you to Google’s archived version of the page which is still available for viewing.

Here is the cached version of the Wikipedia page on Mountain Dew.
