When the first Harry Potter book appeared, in 1997, it was just a year before the universal search engine Google was launched.

After dumping thousands of secret US diplomatic cables in the public domain last week, WikiLeaks ended up losing its web hosting company – twice – and its wikileaks.org web domain to boot as providers got cold feet about its content.
