On WDR Teletext a popular computer journalist, Jörg Schieb, blogged about
the Bertelsmann edition. He was sceptical that the printed edition will
provide new target groups to Wikipedia, because Wikipedia is online for
free, always up to date and so on.
Because of the Digital Divide, I do believe that the printed edition can
reach some people who hardly ever use the net, although they are connected.
Maybe those people get interested in the online Wikipedia having seen the
printed edition.
Actually, the printed edition already had an important effect on Wikipedia's
image: the journalists stress out how useful the internet encyclopaedia is
compared to a printed book...
