Wow, is Wikipedia fast!

I listened to the French radio channel “France Musique” yesterday morning. Being a specialized channel on classical music, it interrupted its normal programme with the announcement that Mstislav Rostropovich has passed away. Being only 2 (or 3?) hours away from Moscow (where Rostropovich deceased) I would think this was really fresh news. I almost immediately went to Rostropovich’s Wikipedia site and… his exact date of decease was already on the page! It is remarkable that Wikipedia can be that fast. I know, nothing that has not been said before, but it still amazes me…
