The Interesting Button
Wikipedia has had a “random” button for years now, but this button is different.
Instead of a generating just any article, I’ve narrowed the list down to the 1,900 or so most interesting ones. The page that comes up could be anything—but I guarantee it’ll be good reading for at least a few minutes.
Know something I should include? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll take a look.
There are 1,924 pages as of June 22, 2022.
