Its kind of Amazing

Over the last two or three weeks I have met a diverse collection of smart, interesting, successful, funny and well respected people, yet for some reason not many had heard of  wikipedia.  What baffles me about this fact is that wikipedia plays a huge part in making me smart, interesting, successful, funny, well respected, good looking, seemingly invincible and humble.

If these people that I have met have such redeeming qualities already without the knowledge available on wikipedia, will telling them automatically lower my status in in said categories?  I am going to take the risk and urge anyone that hasn’t spent a few hours learning on wikipedia to do so now.

By the way, wikipedia is an encyclopedia built by a community on the web, and it is free for everyone.  Go to a topic you are interested in and then peruse related entries through the internal links.  Just be sure to keep track of the time.

    I really wish I could a text of some daily interesting fact. I love Wikipedia.

    Wikipedia has saved my ass on many occasions. No, not because I was challenged Trivia Pursuit style, because I’d be absolutely bored out of my skull and the “Pedia” offered a healthier alternative than robbing banks and bar hopping.
