IVP3-Nasia Haque

My video is a journey through the mass amounts of information located in Wikipedia is an open source encyclopedia, free to all world wide web users to access and edit. With all the knowledge Wikipedia has to offer, it's sometimes difficult to navigate and sift through. My video tries to go through hundreds of pieces of information trying to link them all. It begins with the Wikipedia homepage and a search for Duke University, a piece of information we are all familiar with. Then, through hyper linking, Wikipedia is navigated through, in a seemingly random way. Over 50 pages of information are accessed, from Sir Walter Raleigh to biomedical research, finally ending where it began, back at Duke. Finding the correct path from Duke to Duke at first seemed simple, but Wikipedia proved it to be quite tedious. The background music is "Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" by James Horner, a beautiful piece that really engages the viewer.
