Behind the times

Wikipedia is simply amazing. It’s possibly the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen on the Internet – a searchable repository of information on just about every topic under the sun, compiled by civilisation, for use by civilisation. And I’ve just discovered it tonight.

As a random collection of topics that mean something to me, there’s information about the island I grew up on, the town I went to school in, the University I studied at and which I now work, and the Students’ Union in which I’ve spent far too much time and money over the years. This rocks so much.

I’ve so far managed to restrain myself from editing anything so far, but as I’ve registered an account it’s probably only a matter of time…
