By Ari 24 March 2006 7

Canberra’s made it into big-time geekdom as today’s featured article on the main page of Wikipedia

UPDATE: Now that tech support has finished baking, here’s a screenshot of the page:

I beat Geoffco to it and put Riotact in the links section as “A popular Canberra news and discussion site”. If there are any rational objections to the phrasing I can change it.

I was also tempted to put in the SGS blog as “ACT Blog of the Year” or something but I think that might end up driving property prices down and scaring tourists away (at least the under 60 y.o. tourists).

The article knocking Canberra off Wikipedia’s front page was about the Jackson 5.

That may, or may not, be significant.

That’s the great thing about Wikipedia…

What would you *like* it to say?

actually we get quite a bit of traffic from the wikipedia from a few articles.

we certainly wouldn’t go putting in links to us ourselves but knock yourself out Geoffco, the edit tab awaits you.

If you could get a link from the wikipedia entry to riotact it’d make a difference to the traffic around here 🙂

Won’t make one iota to our tourism figures.

from the word Kambera meaning “breasts” or “meeting place” in the Ngunnawal language.

I’m living in the breasts orgy city, WOO HOO!!!
