    So Keith, why all the Wikipedia bashing? We know it’s not perfect but I often find it’s regularly the easiest place get a decent, general overview of things, plus a few links to point you further. Obviously, with the open editing it’s going to have errors and bias at times, but on the whole the unmanaged editing allows it to grow more organically and broadly. Do you have a proposed solution to cure its ills?

    Hi Ben. Reasons for my disapproval of Wikipedia may be found in the links provided (see esp. the comments in “The Hits Just Keep Coming”).

    On a different note, did you get my email on June 6th?

  3. Ben says:

    Yeah, I did. I haven’t seen anything, but I’ve been in Berlin for all of June, so I don’t know if it’s arrived. Thanks!
