And in this corner
Wikipedia's founder Jimmy Wales goes toe-to-toe with Dale Hoiberg, editor-in-chief of Britannica in the WSJ's article, Will Wikipedia Mean the End Of Traditional Encyclopedias?
Mr. Hoiberg: No, we don’t publish rough drafts. We want our articles to be correct before they are published. We stand behind our process, based on trained editors and fact-checkers, more than 4,000 experts, and sound writing. Our model works well. Wikipedia is very different, but nothing in their model suggests we should change what we do.Wales wins by KO.
Mr. Wales: Fitting words for an epitaph…
Jarvis spotted this one and posts some additional thoughts, but the WSJ article pretty much says it all.
