Wikipedia, you’re the greatest…

So I was bored at the workplace, and decided to lookup the definition of boredom on wikipedia.org. It was pretty insightful. Then I thought to myself, Wikipedia is arguably the greatest Web 2.0 application ever invented. I’m sure some would mention YouTube, Flickr or FaceBook. Possibly, I did say arguably. Yes, Google is using YouTube’s technology to spread knowledge — but for the most part, people make funny, silly or (insert adjective here) videos, and share ‘em. Being vetted by the knowledge consumers themselves, Wikipedia, for the most part, allows you to learn things that – well, you wouldn’t otherwise.

    “Boredom is a condition characterized by perception of one’s environment as dull, tedious, and lacking in stimulation.”

    Yes, yes it did.
