What is it like to have a Wikipedia article about you?

Answer by Darby Stanchfield:

It's pretty cool and pretty surreal. It's also a little bit of a head scratcher, because what shows up on my Wikipedia page is not altogether accurate, but you can't just go in and change it! Wikipedia is the hardest place to edit. They only accept news sources as a resource to correct a fact, and yet often these news sources are the ones who have either gotten the facts wrong or misquoted you! Knowing this, I read people's Wikipedia pages with a grain of salt and try to find other resources when researching someone.
