Knowledge in the Dumps

What happens to the articles Wikipedia rejects? Most disappear forever into the Recycle Bins of history, but a few articles have found a second life at The Wikipedia Knowledge Dump.

The blog, created by Dr. Cliff Pickover, takes submissions from people who are about to have their articles tossed by the Wikipedia–something the site does for various reasons. The blog has no affiliation with Wikipedia, but considers itself “The Official Appreciation Page for the Best of the Wikipedia Rejects.”
