Ten Word Wikipedia an exercise in brevity and succinct awesomeness

You know what. You can take your 140 characters and stick them somewhere else on the internet. Because 10 word Wiki is where it’s at as far as concise online writing is concerned.

The “encyclopedia for the ADD generation” has a ten word limit.

“Legendary pop singer/songwriter, trouble with press. Died June 2009. “

The rules are cool:

  • Describe your subject in ten words. No more, no less.
  • We like to stick to single sentence descriptions. Please try.
  • For more fun, make your revision comments ten words also.
  • Regarding images copyright is bad, drawing your own is awesome
  • The facts can be sexy, but don’t use personal opinions.
  • There’s no such word as libel. We’re fairly laid back
  • Bonus “points” for using humour or indeed using some Gludu

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
