Like the 1911 Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica aimed to be more then a century ago, Wikipedia also threatens to become "the sum of human knowledge" for modern times, with 6,350,941 entries at this moment, calculated to represent nearly 3,000 volumes.

What Wikipedia looks like in hard copy

Many of my contributions to this juggernaut have been initiated by finding empty entries or stubs during 'Random Article' searches. I am also interested in connections. Many of my minor edits have been to fix links, grammar and spelling. Of the articles that I write, I tend to focus on biographical matters rather than technical ones. I have also contributed quite a few photographs, some of which you can find at the bottom of this page.

If you are new to Wikipedia (or you've been here too long and need to come up for air), take a look at the Wikipedia Signpost. If you really need a break, read this, then follow the link. If you want help from the editors of Wikipedia, try the Reference Desk.

Thank you for quality articles, letting us know places such as Saltwood Castle and mostly interesting people such as the best political cartoonist, Bruce MacKinnon, for gnomish improvements and for taking care of categories, all spiced with a grain of satire, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Export hell seidel steiner.png This is my first Wikipedia contribution and hopefully not the last. Thanks for the edit, it remains true to the source information. Having not watched the video I wasn't confident enough to paraphrase. If you ever obtain a copy of this VHS, let me know! Karaokevox (talk) 03:02, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
