Rob Matthews prints out 5,000 pages and makes a book out of Wikipedia featured stories

If you've ever wondered what Wikipedia or a portion of Wikipedia would look like printed, here's a picture.

Thanks to Rob Matthews, who for some reason printed out 5,000 pages of Wikipedia's featured articles.

Why did he do it? According to Matthews: "Reproducing Wikipedia in a dysfunctional physical form helps to question its use as an Internet resource." OK. Not sure what point Matthews is trying to make. Clearly, the book (which probably weighs heavier than I) is a testament of why the Internet is the only place such a collection of knowledge and falsities can exist.
