Mentioned in BBC News Magazine

BBC NEWS | Magazine | Rewriting the rule books

David posted a link to this article on the Y! irishblogs mailing list, and before I’d finished reading it I was about to say “hey, I was there!”: then I saw that I’d gotten a mention for my blog post about my first Wikipedia article on “Tonto’s Expanding Head Band”…

Blogs also give a sense of why people commit time to the encyclopaedia, recent examples including Pete Ashton’s Goodbye Myspace, Hello Wikipedia! and John Breslin’s My First Wikipedia Article: the latter’s an entry on some prog rock synth maestros who helped Stevie Wonder with his funkiness: a sample entry from an encyclopaedia that doesn’t have to worry about how many pages it has.

  1. Can I have your autograph? 🙂

  2. No problem, just send a stamped SAE to John Breslin, 1 Emperor’s Row, Capital City, Cloudland, Earth.

  3. Is there a Northern Cloudland ( on the same island) and what about a postcode? Have you heard about postcodes yet? We’re so advanced up North “postcodes and pipebombs” 🙂
