Sverker Johansson? Do you know who is he?

Wiki Sverker Johansson


He is a writer on Wikipedia. The writer. He made about 10% of all the texts on Wikipedia. When you count that one by one it is about 2,7 millions!
A guy that has written so many texts? Wow! Good work! And all for free!
He is a real Wiki legend.
And he has diplomas from all kind of sciences you can imagine – linguistics, construction, economy…
He made so many articles about rare animals.

 


Johansson wrote a huge part on Swedish of these texts. Well he is from Sweden. And a huge part on – Philipine. His wife is from Philippine Islands.
And do you know his assistant, the Bot?
That’s a computer program that made most of these texts. Well it was too much for a human being to write millions of them. This program researches databases and other sources of digital information and gets them in an article.
It can make about 10.000 of them!
So a really powerful program! Could you differ a text written by a human being and a program?
Is it really that good to use this thing?
