Wikipedia

Synchronicity at work. Yesterday I posted a comment on Simon Waldman’s blog which included a link to a Wikipedia article.

Today the Guardian publishes an article about Wikipedia written by Simon. It’s an interesting article, it mentions Wikipedia’s roots in the Open Source movement tho’ it stops shop of discussing the whole wiki phenomenon. Simon talks at some length about how Wikipedia is self-correcting and points out that pretty much the only people who are criticising it are the traditional encyclopedias – the ones who have the most to lose.
