Welcome to the Reformed Church of Wikipedia, or just the Church of Wikipedia.

Today's sermon: Larry 1:1

In the beginning there was the World Wide Web, and for a time it was good. But then the web became commercialized and banner-infested pages with very bad HTML skills made by lusers and n00bs soon started appearing on such sites as XOOM and GeoCities; with this knowledge in hand a man named Ward Cunningham created an alternative called WikiWiki. This technology that Ward created made it easy and simple to create a wiki, this technology was going to go a long away.

This concludes today's sermon. Tomorrow's sermon will be Jimbo 4:3.

And now the wiki prayer...

Please, grant me the serenity to accept the pages I cannot edit, The courage to edit the pages I can, And the wisdom to know the difference
