Wiki Fugue

Sudden, unexpected Wikipedia exploration, with inability to recall one’s path to the current topic.

Wikipedia is a fundamental part of my internet. One of the reasons I like Wikipedia so much is the potential for any visit to fall into “Wiki Fugue” . Wikipedia understands that links put the hyper into hypertext. And a simple visit can easily become a half hour diversion.

I borrowed “Clapton: The Autobiography” from one of my local libraries the other day. My followup at Wikipedia quickly lead me to the Yardbirds, Cream, Derek and the Dominoes, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and with a little more work “Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time”. I hadn’t meant to take so long, but it was time well spent.
