Thanks Dror for the mention, I'm always too shy to post on mailing
lists what I do ;)
I'm one of the two authors of Manypedia so, if you have any suggestion
or criticism, I'll be more than happy to hear them!
I'll present Manypedia (as a demo/poster) at WikiSym2011 (3-5 October,
Mountain View, California) and I'm trying to get a paper about
Manypedia published so every feedback is really welcome!

The list of controversial articles is a good starting point if you
want to play with Manypedia ...
otherwise check the "featured pages" (4 of them are loaded randomly
every time you reload Manypedia and you can find them on the top right
And also take into account that English is not the only language in
which translations occur, so that for example, if you speak Arabic and
Hebrew you can check, for example,
the comparison of the page "Gaza war" from Arabic Wikipedia and Hebrew
Wikipedia (translated into Arabic) at
but this is just an example: every combination of two languages out of
56 languages currently supported by Wikipedia Translate API.

A better description of Manypedia can be found at
http://manypedia.com/about.html (but it's better styled if you click
on the "About/FAQ" link on top right corner.
I hope Manypedia can be a tool to have some addition al Critical Point
Of View in Wikipedia. Currently I "sell" Manypedia as a tool for
comparing Linguistic Points of View (LPOV) of Wikipedia communities ;)

I wait your feedback! Thanks!
