Wikipedia fyller 20, idag och jag har kommit på några Wikipedianyårslöften för 2021.

Jag tuffade igång med mina nyårslöften lite i tysthet, men inför morgondagens 20-årsfirande av Wikipedia tänkte jag att en liten utvikning kunde vara på sin plats.

Statistik från gårdagen visar att besökarna gärna fördjupar sig när de läser på Wikipedia och inte bara läser den mest uppenbara artikeln. Jag får det till att 41 av gårdagens 100 mest lästa artiklar härrör från händelserna i USA dagen innan. Kan någon minnas någon annan händelse där det har blivit ett så brett genomslag?

I am picking up my reading habits again in 2021 and was thinking about reading lists. For now, I settled on Bookcrossing, but are still up for better platforms or ways to use it (can you order the to be read list or the wish list?).
