Most of you grew up with the Encyclopedia Britannica. In today’s cyberworld, the suffix “pedia” has taken on a whole new meaning. Wikipedia, without doubt, is the Web’s number one online encyclopedia, but did you know they’re are many more. Here, along with Wikipedia, are some others we have stumbled upon during our travels around the Web.

Artcyclopedia
A comprehensive index of every artist represented at hundreds of museum sites, image archives, and other online resources. Artcyclopedia has indexed over 2,300 art sites, and offers over 95,000 links to 180,000 artworks by 8,200 renowned artists.

Webopedia
Webopedia says it’s “the only online dictionary and search engine you need for computer and Internet technology definitions.” It might be true. One thing for sure, it’s a great resource for all things computer-related.

Wikipedia
The Web’s most popular and most famous free encyclopedia. Wikipedia was built collaboratively using Wiki software. Wikipedia now has over one million articles.

Geekpedia
There are two kinds of people and geeks are one of them. Do geeks deserve their own “pedia”. Someone thinks they do. Take a look and see the kind of stuff that makes geeks swoon.

Congresspedia
Learn more about your representatives, how they waste your money, and how many are under criminal investigation right now. A comprehensive site full of things you want to know and some you wish you didn’t.

Toonopedia
“Here at Don Markstein’s Toonopedia™, we take a very broad view of what constitutes a toon. The basic idea is to cover the entire spectrum of American cartoonery.” We couldn’t have described it better. You can even find out what kind of a cartoon character you are. You don’t want to know what kind TC is. And, you really, really don’t want to know what kind of a cartoon character EB is…honest, you don’t!
