Default Project Wiki Addict

Okay, so I thought to try something fun when I have enough free time. So I will probably be doing this either wednesday or thursday, maybe later today if I can find the time.

So here is my idea, I'm going to start from a single wiki article, and I'm going to keep browsing wiki for exactly 60 minutes. Opening all the links to other wiki pages which I find interesting. So like from the 1st paragraph of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer I'd probably open "information age", "fighter aircraft" and "industrial robots" all taking me to the correct wiki pages. I will also be reading a little/some/all of the text in every article, depending how interesting it is.
And keep on doing that for 60 minutes.

The point? Mostly to have fun and to learn new things of course. But also to see how many wiki pages I will have open after 60 minutes. After I'm done I'll also try to post all the wiki articles I read and from where I found them and what articles I opened from that article.

And I'm going to need a little help. I need suggestions about the article I'm going to start with. Just post your suggestions and I'll choose one of them when I start the project.

Not a bad idea actually, try searching up something about where you live or about your surname or some thing daft like that.
