snowing by the bricks on a city evening

Wikipedia has claimed my soul.

I put my hands on my computer and slip into the random article link with a feeling of great relaxation.

Neal Stephenson wrote in his novel The Diamond Age of a great computer, artificially intelligent, shaped into the form of a book called the Primer in which was contained all knowledge that could be accessed when ready. Diane Duane's Young Wizards series contains books - and laptops - with much the same thing, written in a Speech which all living beings can understand.

I've found my Primer. It's sooo cool. And I've already contributed to some entries - here, for example. More to come! Fun fun...
