My Wikipedia Contrail
Matt Web tried typing "en.wikipedia.org/wiki" into his web browser address bar to see what came up (basically it'll show which Wikipedia pages you've visited recently).
He's published his list here, and is interested in seeing other people's lists. So here's mine. Following Matt's lead, if you hover over any of the links you'll get a brief note about why I was looking for that...

Doesn't work for me :( Perhaps I just haven't visited it recently enough!
Hmm, or maybe you're using the "wrong" browser. It seems that Internet Explorer doesn't do the nice list of URLs that match.
Doesn't work for me in Firefox -- I just get the wikipedia main page.
You don't actually hit [return] after typing in "en.wikipedia.org/wiki", you just use that to filter the suggestions appearing in the auto-complete list dropped down below the address box as you type.
And then what? That's nothing more than a browsing history, right?
How does that make a contrail? Can I export it? Share it? Does it have RSS?
Rats. WP really needs to get Web++'ified.
My wikipedia contrail: Amanda Congdon, Albert Szent Gyorgyi, Chota Ecuador, Digital Universe, Digital Rights Management, Egyptian Mythology, Fitts' Law, History of Portugal, Model M Keyboard, Linux, Lawrence Lessig, Marshall McLuhan, microformats, magic realism, Moodle, Ogodad, Paul Krugman, Ra, Recursive acronym, Stigmergy, Djherty, Unix, Wes Anderson ... thanks for showing me how to do this Jason Kottke ...
