What’s in a human?

(nontechnical blog entry)

Ah, Wikipedia. A few minutes ago I was idly browsing the New York Times, reading an editorial which mentioned an event in Falluja in March 2004 which was supposedly a turning point. Idly curious what that would be, I search and end up on Wikipedia which pretty quickly tells me about the event. Another click or two I end up at the page describing what qualifies someone to be “notable” on Wikipedia.

What I find interesting is that in addition to People, one can find the notability guidelines for other categories like Films, Books and of course, Pornographic actors. Er, what?

It has been suggested that this page or section be merged into Notability (people). (Discuss)
