If it was not the banner featuring Jimmy Wales on their entire network, now I got a personalized email from Jimmy Wales himself.
This mail is largely because I have donated to Wikipedia in the past. Pretty long time ago.
I am not sure if I like this personalized mail asking me to donate again. I do not mind donating to Wikipedia… But I certainly do not like the pressure. From.
Jimmy Wales. To donate.
This is not going to be a formal review. But a rant piece instead.
A lot has been spoken about this movie in the recent times.

Wikipedia confirms it. Bing of Microsoft Bing search engine originates from the character Chandler Bing in Friends.
I am a big fan of Wikipedia. I visit it every time I have a question. Google fails to answer most of my questions because it has become very hard to go through all the spam sites that have cluttered its search results. But Wikipedia works great almost all the time.
Pranab Mukherjee: Wikipedia calls this guy a prominent Gandhi family loyalist who did not win a popular election until 2004. He is currently the Acting Prime Minister of India! Incidentally, Dr. Manmohan Singh has also never won a Lok Sabha seat.
This could BE the Wikipedia killer which no one was apparently waiting for.
Google Knol allows anyone with a Google ID to submit an article. The author gets the ability to allow Google advertising on the article.
The revenues generated from that advertising is shared with the author of the article. This factor alone is a good enough reason for people to share their knowledge here instead of Wikipedia.
If Google can keep the spam content/links away from this portal… This could be huge.
But I have a feeling that it would soon become a new addition to all those lists of websites which accepts user articles for SEO purposes.
Not very useful at the moment but definitely fun to use!
