Wow! It seems a no-holds-barred fight is rapidly spreading through the
world's media over whether Wikipedia is a hopeless idea, or the
beginning of something amazing. [After the rash of warring blogs, now
we're getting journalists with pretty good credentials...]
I love the way Malone throws everything right back the other way; a
nice demonstration of the use of 'spin', I feel. E.g. "approaching
400,000 pages" vs McHenry's back-handed "over 382,000 pages that were
thought "probably" to be encyclopedic articles".
May the best man win, I guess - but lets hope we make some serious
progress on validation soon, to give them an extra weapon or two...
