Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has more ways of reaching information than just the top search results.
Did you know ... that [[Lil' Pimp]] was the first feature-length film to be created entirely with Macromedia Flash animation? The Visual Arts Portal gets you there. The visual arts portal is a great example of a literary and visual index to the other articles on the site. Did you know ... that in Japan professional [[kimono]] dressers still help women put on kimono, usually for special occasions, and that the dressers must be licensed? That's from the Fashion Portal.
With such a massive amount of information in Wikipedia, the portals can really help readers find select articles on Comedy, Mathematics , Criminal Justice, Politics, etc. There are over 500 portals to get you started on your read, but a hundred or so have been selected as the cream of the crop. Check those out on the Featured Portals page
