Functionality

This asset may be useful as an introduction to Wikipedia and crowdsourcing on the internet. Each time a change is made to Wikipedia, this asset announces it with a chime sound and a bubble, sized relative to the size of the edit/amount of new content. Users can click through to read the page that has been edited.

It is interesting to observe this for a few minutes and consider the magnitude of activity on the site, and perhaps to use as a random topic generator for writing exercises.
