“I tell you what, though,” said Greg, sipping his coffee. “I wouldn’t mind being on Wikipedia.”

“You can register an account for free,” said James, not really looking away from his monitor.

“No, I mean on Wikipedia. My own article.”

James rolled his eyes. “So start one. It’ll just get deleted.”

“That’s the problem. I want an article that won’t get deleted.”

“You’re not notable,” James sighed, more out of annoyance than anything else. “You’ll have to have done something notable. What you’re really saying is that you wish you’d done something worthwhile.”

“Yes,” nodded Greg. “Worthwhile enough to get in Wikipedia.”

James felt a nerve bulge on his forehead. “So do something notable, then.”

“Such as?”

“I don’t know,” James said, shrugging.

“Well you’re no help.”

“Greg, You’re asking me to come up with a way to make you important enough to merit your own article on an online encyclopedia anyone can edit. If that’s your only aspiration then you seriously need to reconsider your priorities.”
