Although I have not written a wikipedia article for months I have been reading it a lot recently, a favorite of mine was this page (which although is only discussing disturbing pages, may be disturbing in itself to some readers). Wikipedia seems to have a growing number of pages relating to the culture of the Internet itself, never since the witty Australian T.V. show Frontline has a medium published so much introspection. Through Wikipedia, as well as gaining knowledge on a whole range of important subjects one can also learn about the culture of sites such as Slashdot and Something Awful in great detail here and here respectively. I am truly glad to know that the people of the Internet are documenting their heritage and celebrating their culture in a way that will ensure its survival.

I have been doing yet more librsvg hacking, I officially hate the current high-level architecture of the entire project (except for maybe paint servers). I recently added an ability to reference symbols and other parts of the document and use them again and again and again to save document space, but the whole system seems still a little buggy. My aim is at the moment to support all of the non-scripted svgs that come with batik. I believe that clear goals are good and they don't get much clearer than that.
