I Don't Care What the LA Times Says, Wikipedia is Still Weak

A defense of the goofy venture.

And yes, of course I'm just posting this because it mentions me. I'm cast in the bad-guy role near the end of the column:

There are people who want to deface or even destroy Wikipedia. The right-wing blogger Ace of Spades β€” out of mischief and because he heard Wikipedia's operators were liberals β€” recently called on its readers to "punk" the site: to put up as much misinformation and nonsense as possible. Other blogs gleefully expose errors, even if those defects persist only for a few minutes.

No hyperlink, damnit.

Not that it matters. No one reads the LA Times anyway. Including, it seems, its own editors.

Thanks to John, although the writer was nice enough to tip me to the article yesterday.
