What’s hot, per Wikipedia

Is there a hot topic you want to learn about fast? Or do you want to know what some current hot topics are?

Wikirage tracks the topics in Wikipedia that are being edited the most (during the last hour, 6 hours, day, 3 days, week, and month). The web site refers to it as “monitoring the hive mind through Wikipedia edits.” you can even follow it on Twitter.

Some of it makes absolute sense, if you follow the news. Topics getting a lot of editing earlier this week included “Nancy Kerrigan,” “Conan O’Brien,” “2010 Pro Bowl,” and “Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409.” But “Attachment theory”…hmmmm.
