Was talking to a friend recently about Wikipedia, and found myself wondering, “why don’t I ever (attempt) to contribute to Wikipedia anymore?” And then I realized… edit wars. Almost every time I tried to contribute to Wikipedia I would end up in some stupid edit war with another neckbeard somewhere out there in cyberspace.
However, I find that I’m blogging a lot more now post-Wikipedia. So maybe contributing to Wikipedia is somewhat of a gateway drug to blogging. I dunno, don’t really have anything else to say. Just, blogging is the way to go. No edit wars, no comments. Just thinking out-loud and contributing little snippets of information to the collective knowledge bank over time.
