Quiet, Please: Internet at Work

If Boosterrific.com isn't comprehensive enough for your Booster Gold needs, may I suggest a trip over to Cpedia.com, an "automated encyclopedia" billing itself as "The World's Biggest Search Engine." Cpedia surfs the web for you, building a composite article culled from sources around the web, including various wikis, blogs, and message boards. It's a great idea, but it's still a little rough around the edges. For example, the following paragraphs were taken exactly as they appear at Cpedia.com/wiki?q=Booster+Gold.

Created by Dan Jurgens, a writer/artist with a clean line who's probably best-known for killing off Superman, Booster was a frustrated ex-football player from the 25th century who came back to our time to become the hero he always imagined himself. [25.8] The witty dialogue came fast and furious in this one, spotlighting exactly how humour is such an essential ingredient in a good Booster Gold comic. [25.9] Next up is his greatest challenge yet: preventing one of the most horrific wrongs that's ever befallen a hero in the DC Universe. [25.10]

As much as I like Booster Gold, I would not want to see him and Barbara Gordon get married, maybe date for awhile, but not married. [25.11]

Not surprisingly, much of the information on Cpedia about Booster's history was culled from Boosterrific.com. Not that I'm anything other than flattered. In fact, I've been parsing the Cpedia article to try and catch typos on this site! Thanks, internet!
