Seabird Skulls and Star Trek

February 21st, 2005

This Seabird Skulls gallery is an impressive example of the sort of thing the web does so well: letting an amateur with an interest share his knowledge with the rest of us. Not that I have any immediate need to find out about the shape of a pelican's skull, but somebody out there will some day and the Seabird Skulls gallery will be right there waiting for him.

In a similar vein, Memory Alpha is a wiki devoted to the creation and cataloguing of a truly impressive collection of Star Trek information. Again, I don't necessarily need to know any of this information right now – though I did enjoy a bit of a browse – but it's good to know it's there in all its' hypertextual glory.
