Wrap your brainwaves around your neck with these custom 'NeuroKnitting' scarves (video) - Neuroknitting. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Just the word itself makes you think of an odd mixture between cutting-edge technology and an old lady’s hobby, which seems rather uncanny. But the crazy thing is that’s exactly what’s going on here – a pair of artists have somehow managed to combine neuroscience and knitting, and the results are incredible. Read on to find more. Comparison of wiki farms This comparison of wiki hosting services details notable online services which host wiki-style editable web pages. General characteristics of cost, presence of advertising, licensing, and Alexa rank are compared, as are technical differences in editing, features, wiki engine, multilingual support and syntax support. General comparison[edit] The following tables compare general information for several of the more than 100 wiki hosting services that have been created.[1] The Alexa traffic rankings are not accurate for those wiki hosting services that allow some of their hosted wikis to have separate domain names.

Pinterest's role as a referrer for retailers grows: infographic While the debate surrounding Pinterest’s value as a marketing tool continues, we’re finding the stats behind the social curation site increasingly interesting. Last week we covered data from Experian that revealed the demographic profile of ‘those who pin’, and over the weekend, Monetate released a new infographic that follows on from this. While the chart we included in our post from Ignite Social Media stopped at October 2011, we see that from that point until December, traffic increased more than fourfold. In fact, this grew to 7.51m unique visitors in December alone according to Compete. The amount of traffic Pinterest sent elsewhere has risen accordingly, becoming a top five referrer for several 'specialist retailers', according to internal data from Monetate. Of course, it all depends on who those retailers are, which is something we’ll follow up on in the coming weeks, but this does suggest that Pinterest’s ability to send people elsewhere is growing.

Unusual articles This page is for Wikipedians to list articles that seem unusual. These articles are valuable contributions to the encyclopedia, but are a bit odd, whimsical, or something you would not expect to find in Encyclopædia Britannica. We should take special care to meet the highest standards of an encyclopedia with these articles lest they make Wikipedia appear idiosyncratic. If you wish to add articles to this list, the article in question should preferably meet one or more of these criteria:

Wiktionary Wiktionary (a blend of the words wiki and dictionary) is a multilingual, web-based project to create a free content dictionary of all words in all languages. It is available in 158 languages and in Simple English. Like its sister project Wikipedia, Wiktionary is run by the Wikimedia Foundation, and is written collaboratively by volunteers, dubbed "Wiktionarians". Its wiki software, MediaWiki, allows almost anyone with access to the website to create and edit entries. Because Wiktionary is not limited by print space considerations, most of Wiktionary's language editions provide definitions and translations of words from many languages, and some editions offer additional information typically found in thesauri and lexicons. The English Wiktionary includes a Wikisaurus (thesaurus) of synonyms of various words.

It differs from more structured projects such as Wikipedia in that it instead offers a series of tutorials, or courses, for the fostering of learning, rather than formal content. History[edit] Wikiversity's beta phase officially began on August 15, 2006, with the English language Wikiversity. The idea of Wikiversity began with the initial development of the Wikiversity community within the Wikibooks project, however when it was nominated for deletion from Wikibooks, soon there was a proposal to make Wikiversity an independent Wikimedia project,[4] with the fundamental goal to broaden the scope of activities within the Wikimedia community to include additional types of learning resources in addition to textbooks.

Wikispecies Wikispecies is a wiki-based online project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. Its aim is to create a comprehensive free content catalogue of all species and is directed at scientists, rather than at the general public. Jimmy Wales—chairman emeritus of the Wikimedia Foundation—stated that editors are not required to fax in their degrees, but that submissions will have to pass muster with a technical audience.[1][2] Wikispecies is available under the GNU Free Documentation License and CC-BY-SA 3.0.

Wikisource Wikisource is an online digital library of free content textual sources on a wiki, operated by the Wikimedia Foundation. Its aims are to host all forms of free text, in many languages, and translations. Originally conceived as an archive to store useful or important historical texts, (its first text was the Déclaration universelle des Droits de l'Homme), it has expanded to become a general-content library. The project officially began in November 24, 2003 under the name Project Sourceberg. Wikiquote Wikiquote is one of a family of wiki-based projects run by the Wikimedia Foundation, running on MediaWiki software. Based on an idea by Daniel Alston and implemented by Brion Vibber, the goal of the project is to produce collaboratively a vast reference of quotations from prominent people, books, films and proverbs, and to give details about them with appropriate attribution. Though there are many online collections of quotations, Wikiquote is distinguished by being among the few that provide an opportunity for visitors to contribute.[2] Wikiquote pages are cross-linked to articles about the notable personalities on Wikipedia.[3] Initially, the project was created solely in English; a later expansion to include additional languages was started in July 2004.
