The Legacy Of Wikipedia

If I were trapped on an island, and I had to choose 1 single website, I’d choose Wikipedia – an online, free encyclopedia. It is the website that conveys what the internet is all about – free knowledge. It has been an invaluable resource to me countless times, and I wish to share that positiveness by posting about it here.

For example, today I decided to learn about Caffeine and why I go through headaches and weakness after I try to quit the addiction after drinking sodas for 5 years daily. I’ve learned a lot, and discovered why I get headaches, and now I truly want to quit drinking sodas, and retake control of my body.

I had just read an interview with the Wikipedia founder at Slashdot, and felt compelled to write this entry to show my appreciation for what I consider the most invaluable website in all the internet.

  1. I totally agree. Wikipedia is truly in my opinion the most resourceful and informative site on the Internet, right next to Good Blimey, of course. :)

  2. Good Blimey has … been a bit of a mixed results for me. I have a hard time sitting down and writing about my day, which most bloggers do, the site is more of a news and bookmark thing for me, things I tend to find interesting or useful. 3DGPU.com has taken up a lot of my attention right now, although that may change when I redesign this site. Working on 3DGPU taught me a few things about WP that I’d like to integrate to this blog.

  3. Lately I’ve been experiencing the same kind of withdrawl. I’ve got plently of projects in my 24 hours to occupy my time at the moment — my daughter, life, work, family, etc. I try to find the time to write but I don’t always have those 10-15 minutes to spare.

    I understand just what you mean.
