The Longest Now

This looks like the month of wiki in the media.


In addition to the recent “Britannica v. Wikipedia” debates raging around the Net these days (btw, look for my letter to the editor in tomorrow’s Washington Post on the subject, responding to their article from a couple weeks back), now there are weekly posts in the german press about www.wikipedia.de and its projects.


Even the recent “article contest” on the german site, one more project in a wiki of major ones, has received its own blurb on the news site www.heise.de.  We have yet to get to the CD release at the end of the month, which will distribute the german encyclopedia to 40,000 households (along with a bevy of other excellent free content).


And tomorrow… well, tomorrow should give a whole new meaning to the term “encyclopedic” in the media.

Let’s hope none of these reviews were written by fake reviewers.

yowch, right. at least the panel of reviewers knew eachother, making the fakeness harder to do, or just very easy (if they all conspired together).
