Kris won’t like this

Check out James Yap’s profile at Wikipedia now! I’m not making this up. I was wikipedia-hopping when I came across this uhh interesting (yet slightly disturbing) page about this year’s PBA MVP:

Since when did James Yap traded his face for Allen Iverson’s? I hope someone’s working on that Wikipedia entry right this very minute!

    Hahahaha! That is hilarious. On another note, don’t we all wish we had our own profiles up in Wiki? Just another self-absorbed thought. :)

    Well, might be hilarious to some, but more importantly it’s just the tip of the iceberg that shows how broken Wikipedia really is.

    Whne I go to look up an author I’m interested in or some other personality about whom I already know somehting, I find Wikipedia rife with errors and what sometimes appear to be out and out untruths.

    Thousands and thousands of folks visit everyday andf leave, thinking they have gained knowledge … as far as Migs wanting a profile on Wikipedia, jst do it .. truth or ‘enhanced” it’s just like writing a blog post … no need to be accurate, it’s Wikipedia

    A follow-up here, pointing out the hopeless cluelessness off the whole Wikipedia concept.

    For those who don’t want to follow the link, it involves a late night talk show host in the US jokingly advising viewers to go to Wikipedia and post ridiculously distorted and inaccurate information. So many followed his lead that Wikipedia crashed.

    Those in the Philippines should be especially careful of Wikipedia … the concept they have of anything outside the US is poor … there are a _lot_ of inacuracies about the Philippines on Wikipedia and no one at the management level who cares … just viuew our pages, we don’t really care what’s on them….
