DailyWiki

November 12th, 2009

I’m a fairly voracious reader of Wikipedia, and I like to collect and share the most interesting articles I run across. Last weekend, I turned that uh, hobby, into a site called DailyWiki.

DailyWiki, the best of Wikipedia, served fresh daily.

Every day, one strange, fascinating, or notable Wikipedia article will be simultaneously posted to both the blog and the @DailyWiki twitter feed. It’s like one of those word-a-day blogs, but longer.

While I’ve assembled a fairly deep queue of articles, please feel free to submit your own personal favorites.

[And yeah, I’ve since discovered another fellow who’s been doing pretty much the same thing since July (which didn’t come as a surprise, the concept itself isn’t particularly novel), but I’m hoping that my particular editorial take will help the site stand out.]

    The invoked ads are indeed quite nebulous. The analyticator is doing something weird and not pulling from the current page. Unless there’s one scene I missed and Kancho DOES relate to the Wizard of Oz …

    Yeah, they are more appropriate when you view an actual post page with a permanent url:
    http://www.dailywiki.net/2009/11/27/friday-criticism-of-wal-mart/

    Viewing the front page and then moving back pages (to urls like http://www.dailywiki.net/page/2/ ) gives the weird results, as the ads are based on whatever content was at that address the last time google crawled.Not sure how to improve that, been looking into it.

    Oh so the adsense doesn’t happen on the fly, I see.

    Anyway, cool idea with the site. Definitely something I’ll have to take advantage of when the ADD kicks in.
