FORTUNE -- At 8:07 p.m. Friday a Wikipedia user identified only by his or her IP address -- 126.96.36.199 -- added the following paragraph to the Wikipedia entry for Judge Lucy H. Koh, who oversaw the Apple v. Samsung patent infringement trial last August:
It has been discussed extensively in the Technology Community whether or not Lucy Koh has been completely impartial in handling Apple vs. Samsung. She ordered several preliminary injunctions on Samsung products that were later overturned by other federal agencies or were found to have not infringed on Apples Patents.  In addition, her refusal to allow Samsung to submit case changing evidence raises red flags.  The investigation of the role of Jury Foreman Velvin Hogan in the verdict also leads to questions of Koh's impartiality.  Samsung is currently appealing the trial in the Federal Appeals Court and seeks a new trial.
Even the most casual observer of the trial should be able to spot the bias in that excerpt. One of the footnotes linked to a Forbes interview with Groklaw's Pamela Jones, who famously proclaimed the jury's verdict a "farce" and led a four-month Internet smear campaign against the foreman.
The identity of Wikipedia user 188.8.131.52 is a mystery, although there is circumstantial evidence suggesting a link to Samsung or a Samsung sympathizer. He or she also edited tech specs in the entry for the Nexus 10 -- a joint Samsung-Google (GOOG) project -- and sprinkled disparagements in the entry for Apple's A6 processor.
But the world's largest crowd-sourced encyclopedia is nothing if not collaborative. By Sunday morning, the new paragraph had been tagged as "possible vandalism" by an Apple (AAPL) partisan and removed -- links and all -- from Koh's Wikipedia page.

Eric Schmidt: "There are now 1.3 million Android device activations per day" [TECHCRUNCH]
Android is growing at a rapid pace. Last December there were 700k devices activated each day. Then, earlier this summer, that number was at 900k. One month later in late July it hit 1M. Now, in early September, there are 1.3M devices activated every single day.
Schmidt later added that there are close to MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Sep 6, 2012 1:11 PM ET

The Agency's country-by-county Internet count plays catch-up to Wikipedia
The last time we visited the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's World Factbook -- a document that is supposed to be updated every week -- its "country comparison" list of Internet users seemed woefully out of date. Specifically, its December count of Internet users in China (298 million) differed from Wikipedia's (425 million) by 127 million people.
Wikipedia's numbers struck us as more credible MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 1, 2011 8:25 AM ET
Ten years after starting the world's most popular crowd-sourced encyclopedia, Jimmy Wales remains pretty unfiltered. Here's what he thinks on Google's algorithm change, Apple's iron grip on apps, and the Nokia-Microsoft alliance.
When Jimmy Wales speaks, people listen. That's probably because he's the guy behind Wikipedia, the go-to resource for quick crowd-sourced summaries on everything from X-Men to halitosis. Ten years later, it's available in over 270 languages, viewed by 400 MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Mar 7, 2011 2:26 PM ET
The numbers in the Central Intelligence Agency's Factbook are nearly three years out of date
The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency has its priorities, but keeping track of who's using the Internet doesn't seem to be one of them.
Take, for example, China.
According to the current edition of the CIA's World Factbook -- updated within the last two weeks -- there are 298 million Internet users in the world's most populous nation.

Update: That didn't last long. YouTube is now available in Pakistan. Facebook is still blocked.
The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority announced that it will block the popular social networking site YouTube a day after Facebook met a similar fate.
