First there was Wikipedia, the collaborative online encyclopedia created by Jimmy Wales but now administered primarily by Wikimedia Foundation. Since then other wiki-information sources have started to crop up. Among them, is Congresspedia, which "is designed to shine more light on the workings of the U.S. Congress." If you illuminating Congress is a good idea then check out the Center for Responsive Politic’s site, Opensecrets.org.
If you prefer a different kind of illumination then check out Wikiquote, another project of the Wikimedia Foundation. While meandering that site I found a page of quotes by Pablo Picasso that included these gems:
- "The art is a lie that leads us to the truth."
- "Good artists copy. Great artists steal."
- "Every child is an artist. It’s a challenge to remain an artist when you grow up."
- "Computers are useless. They can only give you answers."
Indeed. So, when is someone going to start Questionpedia?
