Kate Middleton Profile on Wikipedia (April 29,2011)
Kate Middleton Profile on Wikipedia (April 30,2011)
Wikipedia is one of the powerful tools over the Internet browsing today; it begun its operation way back 2001 by joined project of Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger using the concept and technology of a wiki pioneered by Ward Cunningham. The Idea is to create a free online free web page that helps the people for searching something on the net.
Wiki is Hawaiian word means “Quick or Fast”, while Pedia is from Encyclopedia, together they put the two word and chuala “WIKIPEDIA” was born, the good thing about this website is they have about 18 million articles (over 3.6 million in English) have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world, and almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone with access to the site.
Just like the images below, if did not notice, there is actually a different between the two, the first one is the snapshot for the result I took April 29, 2011, I heard that Prince William and Kate Middleton is getting married, I was curious about her Kate, so I decided to searched her name on Wikipedia, and the result was the first image below, so yesterday, April 30, 2011, I searched again her name and the result was the second image.
The first image shows that Kate Middleton is the fiancée of Prince William, and their wedding will take place on April 29, 2011 while the second image shows that she is the Wife of Prince William, haha, see how updated the Wikipedia website is, in just about a day old, the profile of Princess Kate was updated from being the fiancée to wife (Cool).
Through the years of using the Internet Wikipedia has become a part of my journey and quest in blogging and self exploration, it helps me to define the things that I can’t understand; it helps me gain knowledge that only through Internet can be found. Wikipedia make it easy for us to make a research and gather some information about any topic.
If you search about something now a day, it’s a lot faster compare than before, but of course that is only if you have internet access, nyehehehehe.
Thank you to Wikipedia for your effort in helping us.
