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.
