The infinite internet

Something like this suddenly makes you realize that the internet is just limitless, and that knowledge cannot be bound by definitions like ‘digital’ or ‘offline’. Rob Matthews created this as an art project; in his words, “reproducing Wikipedia in a dysfunctional physical form helps to question its use as an internet resource.” The contents include only the 2,536 featured articles in Wikipedia, out of a total of 2,905,806 (featured articles are those that Wikipedia’s editors consider truly complete and accurate). 

It’s funny because at work, one of my colleagues recently made a joke about the intense research we were doing for a project, saying ‘we’re going to run out of the internet!’ – I guess not!
