Good article on wikipedia in the New York Times. This is interesting:
[T]he German-language Wikipedia will soon begin creating some “stable entries,” good enough to publish in a textbook or other traditional media. Most likely, he said, these entries will exist in two versions, one of which can still be changed by the public.
If that experiment goes well, Mr. Wales said, the English-language version of Wikipedia could follow suit in the next year.”
This’ll be an interesting development.
