Is that a good summary of what we know about this question?
Oh... that's pretty, I want to show that around! Care to, err, blog
Yes, it's pretty, but I have no idea if it's true yet ;-). Still trying
to get a handle on that question based on what the experts on this list
One thing that struck me this AM is that, while most of Wikipedia MAY
have been written by a small core, it is doubtful that you would have
been able to recruit that small core without a massively collaborative
platform. In other words, the magic of Wikipedia is that it is able to
engage millions of people into creating it, some of whom will become
part of that core.
PS: I don't have a blog yet. Shame on me ;-).
