Wikipedia in Paper

Rob Matthews, a UK based photographer, decided to print out all 3,200+ of Wikipedia’s “featured articles”.  The 2 foot tall book at right is the result.

Just think: you could fit all 5,000 or so pages of content from this book on 1 little microSD card. It’s a pity Rob didn’t take a picture with the teeny tiny  card sitting on the cover; it would be about the size of a postage stamp.

You would need around 1,200 books this size in order print all the English language content from Wikipedia.

That  more than anything should bring home the value of digital content. This is just a tithe of Wikipedia, and yet it’s not nearly as useful as the WikiReader, the dedicated eReader for Wikipedia.
