There’s an interesting article in the Times today about the “coverage” of the Virginia Tech shootings on Wikipedia. You know, Wikipedia is the one that is so easy to bash for its inaccuracies. Well, read the article and you decide, but there is a great quote in the Times article from a 22-year-old student from Finland.
As the popular joke goes, The problem with Wikipedia is that it only works in practice. In theory, it can never work.
Some of you may have seen this already, but it gave me a hearty chuckle when I saw it.
