A Live Map of the Manic Ways People Edit Wikipedia

In the last 35 seconds, as of this writing, someone in Gambier, Ohio, updated the Wikipedia page about Erykah Badu. Someone in Rostov, Russia changed the page for the movie Django Unchained, and someone in San Francisco had something to say about the Maserati Ghibli III, an as-yet-nonexistent car expected to be unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2014.

Also imperceptibly modified in this same sliver of cyber-time: John Dillinger's profile, Wikipedia's "List of fictional robots and androids," and a page on the Middlesbrough Football Club, known, of course, as Boro for short by fans of the English Football League Championship.

The edits come so quickly from across the globe that you'd best screen-grab this addicting liveWikipedia Recent Changes Map if you want to keep track of them.
