WikiCharts Shows Most Visited Wikipedia Articles
Posted on August 27, 2006
A new website called WikiCharts is listing the top articles from Wikipedia. The list of top English articles can be found here. Combing quickly through the list you can spot several major news items in the Top 100 including Pluto, Wii, CW television network, solar system, Hurricane Katrina, JonBenet Ramsey, YouTube and PlayStation 3. There are also lots of adult entries in there as Google Blogoscope also noted. You can expand the listings to show up to 1,000 of the most popular articles. WikiCharts might be useful for a blogger trying to come up with post ideas.
Speaking of Wikipedia, Ross Mayfield has an interesting post about the issue of deletionists and networkists.
