Stop staying up late and creating the Wikipedia page of the second unit director for Waterworld out of the kindness of your own heart: turns out you could’ve been getting paid for it this whole time. The Daily News reports today some savvy Brooklyn bros are making a living writing Wikipedia entries for people either too lazy, modest or incapable of doing it themselves, at $300 a pop. So far they’ve had a dozen clients through their site Mywikipro, including the guy who runs the Animation Block Party at BAM. So is this a genius idea you want to copy, or does this basically ruin wikipedia for everyone? This is why we can’t have nice free things!
