Out of curiosity (or work deadline avoidance), anyone know why the MetaFilter entry on Wikipedia suddenly get a lot more "readership" or views than normal for the five days of January 5th to 9th
inclusive, then suddenly go back down to the previous background level?

There's no mentions in MetaFilter Talk of articles before or on this surge mentioning or linking to MetaFilter, and the history of the Wikipedia article shows no edits since mid-November
. Was this some kind of automated roboty thingie, or human?
