Hardest working man on the internet passes one million Wikipedia edits

23 Apr


Justin Knapp is probably the hardest working man on the internet after becoming the first person to pass the million-edit-mark on Wikipedia. Since 2005, he’s made around 385 amendments per day, each one taking him around four minutes [Citation Needed]. Founder Jimmy Wales congratulated the 30-year-old on his personal feed and Mr. Knapp’s been awarded the site’s Special Barnstar medal and Golden Wiki award for his achievement. He took the news with a good dose of self-deprecating humor, saying that “being suddenly and involuntarily unemployed will do that to you.” Hopefully there’s a certificate wining its way in the post from the Guinness people.
