News of Wikipedia's Death Greatly Exaggerated. Many-to-Many: "A huge number of our current systems are hanging in the balance, because the more valuable a system, the greater the incentive for free-riding. Our largest and most spontaneous sources of conversation and collaboration are busily being retrofit with filters and logins and distributed ID systems, in an attempt to save some of what is good about openess while defending against Wiki spam, email spam, comment spam, splogs, and other attempts at free-riding. Wikipedia falls into that category."
Isn’t it amazing the incentive that a $508m investment will create in pushing a technology area that they really don’t understand anyway?
Maybe someone should explain to them that when “the man” gets involved it’s not cool anymore and it’s time to find a new home.
