Quick update

An odd social artifact of making edits in Wikipedia: it promotes further edits. People are probably monitoring any recent changes and updating those as it strikes them. There are also ways to monitor specific entries, but for most I think that the presence of a recent edit is what's promting the attention. It's a nice, unexpected benefit.
