I am SUCH a geek...

I just edited my first Wikipedia article. I discovered Wikipedia a couple of weeks ago (though I think I heard of it before that), and it's become one of my new obsessions. I know, like I needed another obsession besides LiveJournal. So I finally took the plunge on Saturday by setting up an account. Tonight I did some editing on the article for Warren, Michigan. I think what I did was pretty safe for a newbie. For instance, there were two consecutive sentences with two different population figures. Well, not any more.

Is Wikipedia really a good thing? I'm still trying to decide about that. But so far it seems fun in that geeky sort of way. And it might give me a chance to keep my editing chops up, since I don't really do much actual editing in my day job anymore.

It is pretty cool, isn't it? There's some really good stuff to read there. And you can get in there and fix things -- it's interactive!
