I check Wikipedia at least once a day for random things and recently the “donate to keep us going” messages have gotten bigger, now covering almost half of your landing page screen. Yet the closest I got to donating was when I clicked on that part of the page, chose the minimum required amount..
Interestingly, right after I wrote that note on Star Wars, I came across this interesting article in The Atlantic. Some excerpts which I find most relevant below

Yesterday marked the release of the first trailer for JJ Abram’s 2015 Star Wars Episode The Force Awakens. It took less than 3-4 hours for fans all over the world to congregate in front of screens everywhere and then start responding with opinion (some quite well written) and all forms of fan..
“Can’t believe I finished that Ironman in the top 50—it was my personal worst.” Nope, that dash of humility doesn’t disguise all that self-promotion. Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University, cowrote a book about people like you: The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age..

But the fact that the algorithm shows things fragmentarily and also that people have a different frame of mind when they engage with content on channels such as Facebook and Twitter makes me see why Quora is such a great place for getting honest and real feedback.
The problem though is that it seems to be moving the LinkedIn way and there are so many questions about baking and healthy living left unanswered
Every year, around xmas, a battle is fought on who makes the most watched xmas TV ad. In Britain.
This year’s contenders:

Vine in curand luna cadourilor si, daca lucrati intr-o companie cat de cat mare, stiti ca asta inseamna luna felicitarilor de la/catre parteneri si clienti. Eu asociez luna asta mai ales cu un morman de agende pentru anul urmator care toate ajung in sifonierul tatalui meu [care nu a folosit..
