This bound version of Wikipedia contains only the featured articles from Wikipedia. It obviously does not encompass all of Wikipedia. If it did, it would stand as tall as . . .well, a tree.

  1. In relation to this, Wikipedia is oft maligned for the inaccuracy of its content, I wonder how the Encyclopedia Brittanica stacks up against it in terms of %errors?

  2. I'd love to have a leather-bound Wikipedia. Such a tangible paradox.

    @ Stephen Holmes: according to Nature, it averages out to 2.92 mistakes per article for Britannica and 3.86 for Wikipedia.

    Hi Kas,

    I found your article http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech/Vol.15/15.06/FastBlitStrategies/index.html searching the web.

    I would like to know where I can get the BlitsKrieg code that you named at the end of the article. You can send me more info at alexander_quinones_AT_gmx_DOT_de.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Best wishes,

    Alex
