Wikipedia

I am not sure whether anybody else does this, but I have found that reading the discussion (or talk) page behind wiki entries can be as interesting as the articles themselves. This page gives one a real feel for how entries were put together, what was left out, and also gives one a platform to contest aspects of entries one is unsure of without the burden of authorship. Here is the discussion page for the entry for Cape Town as an example.

Ja, I've done this once or twice, and it was quite interesting. Will start doing it more often. BTW, has anyone read Wikipedia's article on Wikipedia?
