Searching for author, movies, television shows, music etc. brings up an interface that is scraping the data on Wikipedia.

Wikipedia could/should have done this a long time ago, trying to do anything like this on Wikipedia would take at least 1000 lines of discussion on one of the many talk pages.

Does Google have less politics than Wikipedia?




Why should Wikipedia have done this? Wikipedia is conservative because their job isn't to do much more than be a solid encyclopedia. What's great is they keep their data open so people can do what they want with it.
