Wiki, wiki

Apparently, Wikipedia is rethinking the open edit situation. Now, they are looking to limit user edits...for good reason, too. An entry claiming that Senator Ted Kennedy died after President Obama's inauguration on the 20th sparked this flaming interest in changing the way things are done. For more, read about it on cnet news.

The Wikipedia Paradox (okay, a different one)

"Wikipedia does not publish original thought: all material in Wikipedia must be attributable to a reliable, published source." (I read that at Wikipedia.)

"Wikipedia's standards of inclusion--what's in and what's not--affect the work of journalists, who routinely read Wikipedia articles and then repeat the wikiclaims as 'background'..." I just read this here at Technology Review by Simson L. Garfinkel.

When the published source relies on Wikipedia content, the paradox arises.
