Came across a very interesting website that technology has helped to create. It lists the most Wikipedi'ed resident of a city: people born in, lived in, or connected to a place.
There are some very interesting results, ranging from a former pornographic actress in a hotbed of Mormon conservatism (St. George, UT) to Steve Jobs who seems to pop up everywhere in Silicon Valley to Michael Jackson in Las Vegas. The site doesn't discriminate on much of anything, dead or alive, hero or criminal (Ted Bundy, serial killer, is the Salt Lake City person).
Fun to check out cities where I have lived to find out who represents them.
Who are the interesting people in your neck of the woods?
