Wikipedia and the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake

The Wikipedia, an encyclopedia created by which one of us co-writes it, is one of the most fascinating developments I've seen in the last few years. It's already one of the most thorough sources of information about the earthquake and multiple tsunamis.

As I write this I am digesting how it feels to read these events as historic or geographic facts (in an encyclopedia) at the same time as these human stories and events are unfolding (on my television).

The Wikipedia is also in Portuguese, not as a translation but as a parallel (?) complementary (?) contextualised (?) version of the same encylopedia.
