Wikipedia is a pretty amazing website. Millions of pages of information, with new pages added and current pages being edited or deleted every second – all done by the Wikipedia community. But most of the time we don’t even notice these changes happening. An article outdated a minute ago can be up to date in the next – but when does all this take place?
Well, if you’ve ever wanted to know about how active the Wikipedia community and how fast they perform their edits you’re in luck because there’s a website just for that. Called Wikistream, the website basically lists out all the changes happening on Wikipedia in real-time. Sometimes the updates happen too quickly for you to catch – fortunately there’s a pause key you can hit when something catches your eye. Makes you wonder how we used to live with paper encyclopedias where we had to wait for annual updates? Check out Wikistream for yourself.
