    Holy crap!! Jeff, you're on Wiki!!!

    How does one go about suggesting an edit or addition to one of those articles? I could spend DAYS talking about this stuff...

    Yeah, I was wondering that too. Really nice, but it could be beefed up a bit...then again, I'm biased

    Anybody can edit entries on Wiki. All you have to do is sign up (at east that's how it used to be). That's what's great about Wikipedia; it allows anyone to add information to an entry (or remove stuff that's inaccurate).

    It also allows anyone to add misinformation!

    That does happen quite a bit. Fortunately there are users out there that correct the misinformation pretty quick.

    A British company did a study comparing the accuracy of information between Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britanica. It found that Wiki made about as many mistakes as the encyclopedia, but had much more timely information. I wouldn't rely on it for something serious, but it's the first place I check if I have a generic question. And it usually provides links to more reputable sources for the information at the bottom of the articles.

    Anyone can edit it...you don't even have to register. If you register, only your wiki your username shows up as the source of the changes. If you don't register, it shows your IP address. If you have broadband (static IP address), this may be a privacy issue for you if you're sensitive to that.

    I don't know who started the article. I made some changes to it once b/c there were some inaccuracies, but then someone wrote over them...probably the original guy got mad that someone fixed his mistakes. Like the picture of the HH with the dude's legs on each side of the opening.
