Take that, Britannica! Wikipedia outdoes you again!


You can argue about whether this sort of "fluff" is appropriate to an encyclopedia, but I found the article pretty interesting and useful. WTG Wikipedia!

By the way, you can watch the real video of Dragostea Din Tei by the boy band O-Zone on iTunes Music Store. It's like watching a Pet Shop Boys video produced by Bel Ami. Look at Music Videos, it's on the 3rd page sorted by release date.

UPDATE: To make KidKero happy, here is the download URL for the iTMS: Dragostea Din Tei.

There is a way to link to it direct with a URL (phobos.whatever) that launches iTunes, but I haven't figured out how to do it. kuteluvr made a comment with it in a post I made about that video a few months ago, but now I can't find it. Without the link, you need an actual iTMS account to access the store before you can get to it.

Apple REALLY needs to fix that music video page.. iTMS is so awesome, but when you go to the videos it's like "here fucker, have 600 of them *BLEAH*. Good luck!"

Having now participated in a few dozen discussions on Wikipedia about which articles to keep and which to delete, I'm glad to see content like this. Those snooty few who think that an encyclopedia should be limited to academic topics miss the whole point, I think. Since Wikipedia is not limited by paper or printing costs, there is no reason not to include any notable fact.

The tricky part is organizing the information.

That said, there is a problem with commercial content, vanity (non-notable personal pages), and vandalism. The deletion process takes care of those pretty fast, though.

It's entirely appropriate to document one of the most popular internet phenoms of the year. I'm sure many people found the information of interest.
