Geek Links of the Week

Wikipedia is an invaluable resource for just about everyone but would it surprise you that it’s on the decline. Upwards of one-third fewer people are updating it than six years ago. [MIT Technology Review]

Maybe I’m selling the new AMD Radeon HD R-series GPUs short. The flagship R9 290X may be a little loud but it’s certainly got amazing performance for the price. [Tom’s Hardware]

Your favourite childhood author, RL Stine, the man behind Goosebumps, did an AMA this week. He’s written an adult horror book because all his original readers have grown up. [/r/IAmA]

Zynga: The story of how one gaming company went from the penthouse to the outhouse. [Ars Technica]

And this weekend marks the StarCraft II World Championship Series Season 3 final from Toronto. Sadly, I don’t like near enough to make it to the big show so I’ll be watching it on stream. So here’s a viewer’s guide to the action. Given fellow Canuck Scarlett’s absence, I’m hoping for big runs from Polt and the Boss-Toss (MC). [Battered Joystick]
