This post is not about GDPR I pulled that as a random Wiki card I made of the Wikipedia page for GDPR regulation in Europe via Marble Cards as an NFT.
This post is to talk about Wikipedia and how I appreciate it for being one of the best examples of the good that can be done with the internet. I use it ever week at least to look up a topic on something and most everything is covered with the site.
The site is run by amazing volunteers with this non profit who edit and check for accuracy they take the role very serious and have setup notification systems for edit changes alerting them of edits that rival anything on the internet in real time updates tracking which in times like these with deep fakes and misinformation is a valuable source.
You will see pages locked not being able to be added to if for example a celebrity or politician makes a controversial statement that might get the page attacked by trolls, cyber terrorist. You will see sources for reference with links at the bottom of each of the pages. The sheer number of templates for different topics and sources cited is really an amazing accomplishment and wealth of knowledge.
There is a group on ActiveRain that was started back on 9/15/2008 you can find the link here to the group.
Searching ActiveRain there are "About 1,290 results (0.27 seconds)" results that returned.
Searching Wikipedia there are two results for ActiveRain one for Ben Kinney the owner of ActiveRain and one for an archive link to an old ActiveRain post about
Armour Hills, Kansas City, Missouri
The link seems to have been moved but still points to ActiveRain, you can find old links via Archive.org but that's for another post.
I will be posting this post to the ActiveRain group and if you are interested in learning more about Wikipedia I suggest checking out the Lex Fridman podcast with founder Jimmy Whales
