Actually the article is a lot better than that.  It's an important 
piece of history in the writing.  I'm looking forward to the book.  
Larry is very careful to point out that he is Wikipedia's friend 
and I see no conflict.

He started it as a test, and it snowballed out of control. Nobody 
could predict its popularity.  Larry to me seems like a hesitant 
Martin Luther who says "wait, I didn't want to start a new church, 
only reform the old one!"  But nobody wants to wait.
