Wikipedia

If you are not yet using Wikipedia.org, you are missing out on a great resource.
I use them often, and I am donating $20 every month to their work. I think spreading knowledge is one of the most important activities in the world, more than worth supporting.
They have several other projects worth noting.

And to think Wikipedia costs nothing to its users -unless they want to contribute-! The best things in life are free...

Which is precisely why Wiki deserves all the mouth-to-ear advertizing they can get. Spread the good word, my bruthas an' sistahs.

I love Wikipedia. The only thing is, is to remember to take everything in with a grain of salt. I actually use it for a starting place. Say I'm curious about something, last time it was the IEEE802.3 standard, I started out at Wikipedia and then got more nad more specific. Fun!

And I love how the articles are linked to each other. I don't remember how, but one day I ended up at an article about the different types of Japanese toilets - great!

I learned to work with encyclopedias and other reference materials in elementary and high school, but now... I don't know how people managed to just not have all this information at their fingertips. Kudos to Wikipedia for making it that much easier.

I know!
Altogether, life without the Internet is hardly imaginable to me now.

Isn't there a History article on Wikipedia about the pre-internet era? Should give you the beginning of an answer to your metaphysical interrogations...

AND for that school essay that's due on Monday.

However, they never accepted your name there.

Thanks, I'll look at it.
