My First Wikipedia Edit

When I wrote yesterday's article about ambigrams, I meant to mention xpedx, a company with an ambigram logo. But looking at the Wikipedia entry, I saw that it had a list of such logos. So I decided to edit the Wikipedia entry directly. Ook! It turned out to be a combination of the sacred and the mundane...it's pretty easy to edit stuff (which is the idea of course) but I'm still a bit nervous wondering if someone is going to remove the change an hour from now.

On a related note, as I like to say, on John Langdon's website he mentions that a second edition of Wordplay is now for sale. He describes it as "about 98% of the 1992 edition, plus about 25% new material: many new ambigrams, several new essays, plus a 16 page color insert featuring a number of my word-illusion paintings." Plus some other stuff too. And guess who wrote the Foreword?

I love wikipedia - its great to start a new entry and go back months later to see how its progressed. And the best part about it is that anyone can contribute. Between wikipedia and h2g2.com, you can spend quite a few hours reading up on stuff..
