World Events Database

By Deane Barker on August 10, 2004

Here’s something they need to add to Wikipedia: a world events database. So many notable things happen in the world from day-to-day that it’d be nice to have a database of them, a running record, a blog, if you will.

Wikipedia has yearly and daily entries, like Laci Peterson murder trial (actually, I don’t need to know this, because my wife is glued to CourtTV and keeps me updated whether I like it or not, but it’s an example…). With a flat database table and a good keywording system, I could look these all up and connect to the related Wikipedia entries.

Thoughts on this?
