Wikipedia

In this months Wired magazine, they ask "Is wikipedia too vulnerable to pranks and errors?"
I have never seen a mainstream media article about Wikipedia that didn't itself contain errors. What's the retraction time for those errors? Wikipedia works because it's dynamic and alive and doesn't require the same structures as old fashioned slow media.......I wish people would stop comparing a living organism to deadwood.

I can't agree more. With all debate over the authority of wikipedia, you need to step back to see what rules do we use in the new game of the dynamic web. The structures of old media and gatekeepers need to adapt or they will face the fate of the dinosaurs.
