Topic LAMPR: Get Started with Ruby on Rails in less than five minutes -
Free Culture - Professor Wikipedia - CollegeHumor -
A short but interesting take on Wikipedia, and the side effect of anyone
being able to edit the content. Listen as Professor Wikipedia alters his
lecture presumably because people are "changing" his lecture behind the
scenes. The funniest video of the year. [Citation needed.] 02:55
