Um, I would not MAKE it, but if somebody else made it first, I would write in it to make sure it was all correct.

I don't think I would, because that would be kinda pitiful...but if I were extremely famous, and it wasn't there, I might just write it in. I can imagine Richter irritated that nobody had written about him on Wikipedia, and so he writes his own, haha. If they even had Wikipedia back then...

I can't imagine Richter bothering with self promotion and whatnot. He's not like Rostropovich.

Wikipedia's guidelines state:

"Writing an autobiography on Wikipedia is strongly discouraged, unless your writing has been approved by other editors in the community....Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Autobiography)

I realize there are many folks who think that Wikipedia has no rules or that any rules for the web are an infringement of their personal liberty and shouldn't apply to them. I am not one of that ilk. In general, autobiographies are frowned at by the Wikipedia editorial community and are unlikely to survive in their original form (unless the subject is so obscure that nobody reads it). Correcting clear-cut factual errors in an existing article about yourself is less deprecated, but the episode should be noted on the talk page.

Internet fame through youtube isn't the same as fame in the real world.

I'm not Lisitsa, nor as famous as she, so why should I care? According to Wikipedia's guidelines, I shouldn't anyway. Silly question.

I don t think Richter would really dig the internet - He'd probably hate it, even more than he hated telephones.

My impression is Valentina , who is a superb pianist , seems a very nice girl, and does a lot to promote not only herself but piano music too, is definitely bigger in youtube than in "real life".

About 50% of the pianists I know had already heard of her, and the other 50% do now ;-).

Youtube is one of the many modern ways of promoting oneself that Valentina has cleverly exploited. I'm sure its a large factor in her popularity outside America (though her new Rachmaninov recordings will do her good too). Pretty soon making the distinction between internet-cultivated popularity and popularity in the 'real world' will become meaningless.

She was pretty well known before people were watching videos on the Web, and long before YouTube.
