Crooked Timber on Wikipedia

John Quiggin, Crooked Timber blogger and some-time Wikipedian, has a good post about Wikipedia and its upcoming milestone (millstone?) of 2,000,000 articles, “Wikipedia at 2 million“.

It’s followed by a lively discussion: 124 comments and counting. Well worth the price of admission, with plenty of crotchety knowledge workers pouring in from a link at the Chronicle of Higher Education blog about blogs, Footnoted.

Update: see comment #125.

One thought on “Crooked Timber on Wikipedia”

  1. Well, it was an interesting exchange, until two individuals appeared to recite their laundry list of attacks on Wikipedia. I guess any conversation about Wikipedia is over when a certain person’s name (allegedly the Sydney Bristow of Wikipedia) is mentioned.
