Encyclopaedic Rows

As usual, it takes me a few days to get through each Sunday’s Observer — which is handy as I usually only buy a daily paper on Saturdays (the Guardian, natch) and it gives me stuff to read at lunchtime at work during the week.

So there I am at lunchtime, chicken soup in one hand and the Business and Media section in the other, and an article about Wikipedia pops out at me — this article, in fact — which turns out to be an excellent overview of Wikipedia and the constant hassle it gets from detractors and producers of “traditional” encyclopedias, i.e. the Brittanica.

It’s refreshing to see sites you love getting kudos in the mainstream press, and such a weird feeling that years ago you didn’t even get URLs on the TV :)
