Open Your Brain!

I recently read a book called The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau (click here for a short review I wrote). I liked the book, and I wanted to mention an idea that the author talked about. One of his pieces of advice for improving understanding of the world is to read a new Wikipedia article every day. He says:
“Set your home page to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Randompage. Over the next year, every time you open your browser, you’ll see a different, random Wikipedia page. Read it. Cost: $0.”

Actually, that sounds like a great idea to me if you want to learn English! This trick works with other languages, too, but the address would be slightly different. For example, you can try a random article in these languages:
You can apparently do this with any other language that uses Wikipedia, if you know where to click; another option is to simply open Wikipedia and type [alt-x] to get a random article.
Finally, if you’re learning English, did you know that there’s a “simple” version of Wikipedia? You can find it here. It has shorter, more basic versions of articles. If you want a random, simple article, click here.
So, have fun exploring a bit! If you find anything interesting, tell us in the comments. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
