Pedia Crazy

4:14 pm - Jason G. - Politics, Technology

In addition to the rather famous Wikipedia, there are others in the -pedia space…  my favorites are Dealipedia and Congresspedia.

Dealipedia breaks down who made what on a given business deal…  for example, who made money when CBS bought Last.fm.

Congresspedia brings crowd-sourcing to political watchdogging…  read or contribute to what your local congressperson has been up to.

Dedication

Now, why can’t everyone else have this much dedication to their job?

After nearly four months of keeping a secret, 73-year-old Carl Hunter of Metairie claimed the $97 million Powerball jackpot from the Jan. 16 drawing at Louisiana Lottery headquarters…

The owner of a construction company, Hunter wanted to make sure his outstanding jobs were complete before “closing up shop” to redeem his winning ticket.
