An art installation for Wikipedia’s 10th Anniversary party suspended 18 printers over a room. Why? The printers printed real-time edits made to Wikipedia to show the physical record that Wikipedia’s community leaves behind. Which is lots and lots of edits.
Each printed edit gave a brief one line description of the article and the edit being made by the contributor. It’s like knowledge falling out of thin air. I’d love to sift through that pile. [Dean McNamee]
