At times I feel that it is overwhelming to keep up on all the news, comedy shows, football matches, new books, political controversies, products, programming languages, magazines and so on that are available to me and that I am somehow expected to know about.

This made me think of a cool quote from Douglas Couplands video “Close personal friend”:
I used to have this fantasy that I’d go into a coma for one year and when I came out of the coma I’d have a year of magazines and pop-culture to catch up on. It’d be like information crack and really fun, but now every day is like waking up after a year of having been in that coma.

The video can be seen on YouTube and the quote can be found at 5:26 minutes from the beginning of part 1.

And googling the above quote, it shows up in someones quote collection.

My debut as a Wikipedian (digital Dark Age)

I don’t think I can think of a topic that interests me for which I haven’t been able to find an article on Wikipedia.

However, recently it happened that a topic that I’ve heard mentioned independently by my brother-in-law¬†and a colleague simply didn’t exist on Wikipedia. So I thought that my contribution to Wikipedia should be an article on the digital Dark Age.

I hope you’ll enjoy it. And be bold in editing!
