I think Wikipedia is pretty cool, in general, and I'd say I use it on a daily basis. Despite the rolled eyes of so many who say it's unreliable since anyone can edit it, Wikipedia offers a ton of information, with citations, and it's the only place you can go read an in depth article on light saber fighting styles.
That being the case, I'm thinking I'll probably donate this year in their annual fund raising drive, as requested by the appeal mentioned above.
But . . . I have to ask . . . what the hell is with that picture*?
Why is he so serious? Is that supposed to show us how desperate he is for our donations? I'm not sure I want to see that every time I want to look up the list of 30 Rock episodes. It kinda makes me uncomfortable, him up there staring at me.
"Come on Sam. Hit the link. You're always here looking up processor models, and you never contribute a thing."
And maybe that's the problem right there, it seems like he might have his "Dad face" on.
"I'm not angry that you're reading about locations in the Harry Potter books. I'm disappointed."
Actually, now that I look at it a little closer, he just looks uncomfortable. I think maybe Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales just really needs to pee. They should replace the text on the picture with that in mind.
A personal appeal from
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales
who refuses to go to the bathroom until you donate.
