Unity in diversity
Wikipedia is not merely a virtual encyclopedia, nor is it merely a free website for all. It is a dream, a human effort (by thousands if not millions of people) and a "temple for the mind" (as written by its founder Jimmy Wales). Wikipedia is "a dream, a humanitarian project" and a way to greatness for many of the people in the under-developed to the developed world.      While in many online sites, the gather of the minds have been capitalized by the few, …

This is one of the greatest websites in the world! Gives very informative and sometimes hilariously worded articles on virtually every subject on the planet. But I love to go in and fall down the "Wikipedia Black Hole:" That's when you go in intending to get some information on a particular subject, but while reading up on it, one of the links in the article catches your eye and you have to click on it and read that too! Then in THAT article, you click another interesting-looking link, and it keeps …

One of the most ambitious projects in the history of mankind.
Over the centuries men have dreamed of a day when the sum of all human knowledge could be compiled in just one place.  Until a mere decade ago this concept while quite admirable seemed utterly preposterous.  But at the dawn of a new millenium new technologies were emerging and all of a sudden the idea was not so crazy.  Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger understood this perhaps better than anyone.  In March of 2000 they launched an online encyclopedia …

If the internet is an online encyclopedia, this is the Internet's encyclopedia and will be, what I believe the new standard for many websites.

Other than not being able to cite it in papers (haha), it's extremely useful!

Let me ask you a question... when was Alexander Hamilton born?  How long did he live?  How about giving the big details of his life?  A great deal of us will pick up a book or do a google search on Alexander Hamilton to figure out these answer.  But an even greater deal of us will turn to Wikipedia for all of this information.  In fact, if you are the type that will turn to google immediately, the first result will link you to Wikipedia (when trying to search on google I …

Octopodes!
Did you know that there are, in fact, three forms of plural for "octopus?" They are: octopuses, octopi, and octopodes. Thank you, Wikipedia.     The online encyclopedia revolutionized the idea of "free knowledge" being readily available on the Internet. It also started a huge trend of wikis, some good and some bad. I don't think a day goes by where I don't look up something on Wikipedia.     Of course, this is a user-driven community and can only be as good …

As a sponge for knowledge, I can spend hours on Wikipedia reading about the most random things. I love how they're so organized!

Ever heard the expression "curiosity killed the cat?" Well, I'll probably die from some cocktail of starting at the computer monitor and severe carpal tunnel because I'm literally on Wikipedia all day quenching my thirst for knowledge about anything. Wikipedia is one of the best things to happen to man kind, in my opinion, since the invention of movable type and the printing press. It makes quality information available to the masses that is free of charge and easy to access.    Before, …

Out with the old stale books of knowledge and in with a fresh online knowledge base.  If you are yearning to know more about anything, Wikipedia is an absolute go-to website. If you are the smart know-it all you can write factual information and help populate this site.  Or for the, sharp as a marble (aka not so bright) this site will help increase that sub -standard intelligence level.      Wikipedia's information never goes stale becasue people, …
