2007-10-03 Wikipedia For The Win

I ❤ Wikipedia!

I’m reading up on Japanese sculptures in my biggest bookOstasiatische Kunst by Gabriele Fahr-Becker. And when it mentions a certain sculptor named Jōchō and his Amida statue in the Byōdō-in without providing a picture, I can just Google for all these names and sure enough, the appropriate Wikipedia pages come up and there are in fact images of the very statue I’m looking available on the Jōchō page.

Perhaps I should donate some money to Wikipedia. I’ve started using it more and more over the last year or two.

And perhaps I should rethink my thoughts on search engine support for Oddmuse. Right now my main priority has been minimizing load by search engines. Perhaps a new trade-off needs to me found.
