Knowledge on Tap

My new homepage is the Wikipedia Random Page. Yeah, I was one of those geeks that actually liked reading random encyclopedia articles when I was young and my parents bought the requisite multi-volume set with the annual year books. Wikipedia is a thousand times better because it incorporates cultural awareness in its researched articles. You also can look at the discussion and see what kind of biases exist in the writing, which you can’t do in a regular encyclopedia.

They’re in another fund-raising season — consider contributing.

  1. I was definitely a kid who read the encyclopedia randomly when I was a kid (my parents made an excellent investment in buying those books, and they look nice, at least no worse than say casebooks and stuff). (of course, then came my fear that I was such a nerd and the only one who read the encyclopedia back in the fourth grade…)
