Description
"Print Wikipedia is a both a utilitarian visualization of the largest accumulation of human knowledge and a poetic gesture towards the futility of the scale of big data. Michael Mandiberg has written software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out 7600 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com. In addition, he has compiled a Wikipedia Table of Contents, and a Wikipedia Contributor Appendix"--http://printwikipedia.lulu.com The content of Print Wikipedia was harvested from the Wikipedia database on April 7, 2015 and uploaded to lulu.com in June 2015--New York Times, June 16, 2015.
