You Gotta Read This

There's an awesome article by Stacy Schiff in this week's New Yorker on the creation and evolution of wikipedia.

Fun stats such as: wikipedia "receives as many as fourteen thousand hits per second."

I mean. Wow.

I use Wikipedia all the time. Of course there's the odd article which is a little unreliable but there's nearly always links to other useful sites if nothing else.

And it's free! Such a rarity nowadays for someone to try to give something for nothing - they survive on our donations but don't pressure us to make them.
