Fast Company,Wikipedia Galaxy video: Fall Through A Wormhole Into This Stunning Wikipedia Galaxy | Co.Design | business design

Wikipedia does indeed merit a rousing three cheers or should I say Four million-six hundred and sixty eight thousand-one-hundred and seventeen (4,668,117) CHEERS! This brought to us by  Owen Cornec, a French computer science student who also deserves a huge round of applause.

Quote from Fastcompany :

"There are a 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy alone, and the Milky Way is relatively small on the cosmic scale. Luckily, there aren't nearly as many Wikipedia articles: with only 4,668,117 entries published to the English Wikipedia as I write this, stars outnumber those Wikipedia entries 1,867 to 1. From that perspective, Wikigalaxy—a beautiful new visualization of Wikipedia that transforms Wikipedia into a virtual galaxy and maps every entry to a star in a distant nebula—isn't exactly a one-to-one mapping. But when your core idea is this cool, it doesn't need to be."

I have also siezed upon this work to bring readers attention to the impressive approach to Innovation by Fastcompany
