Wiki history and evolution

The purposes of this assignment are to familiarize you with the post history recording and history analysis tools available with Wikipedia and many other wikis and to illustrate the evolution of a wiki in an area of your interest.

Select a Wikipedia page on a topic you are familiar with and view its history.

You will find links to external tools for presenting and summarizing the historical data along with a list of the edit history of the page. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the edit history and those tools, then write short answers to the following questions:

In what ways has the evolution of your page been similar to that of the Metal Umlaut page?

How has the evolution differed?

Print your answers to turn in.
