Why Wikipedia Rocks

My brother was Googling a cousin of mine, Shakeeb Dallal, and came upon this Wikipedia article on my grandfather, who was also called Shakeeb Dallal.

I didn’t know any of these things about him.

It’s just the most amusing feeling in the world when you discover stuff about your own grandfather on the collaborative, anonymous bits and bytes of digital web space.
