We've picked off a lot of low hanging fruit,
approaching all of it. Things
We've picked up all the fruit that's actually on the ground with neon
signs pointing to it. There's lots of low hanging fruit, e.g.:
A month-ish ago, I spent a week putting together an
article on one
explosives engineering topic which was completely missing... leaving us with
about 95% of that field still uncovered so far.
Aerospace engineering is poorly covered.
Automobile engineering is somewhat covered, but not with really good
articles. Rocketry needs a lot more. Astrodynamics needs a lot more.
Naval architecture and ship design topics are poorly covered now.
Three of the last eight highly technical terms I went looking for
information on weren't in Wikipedia in any significant way, across a bunch
This is just what's on my mind right now. Every
time I've looked at it I've
found more gaps.
Here's to red links, the signposts to future growth!
I could spend the rest of my life adding information
to Wikipedia, at this
rate, if I didn't have to have a day job and didn't want to go sit on a
beach. Hopefully we can over time add more new editors / contributors in
these fields so I don't have to 8-P
Careful, you might get a life with that sort of attitude!
