A couple of interesting related articles on facts and non-facts:
"Wikipedia is one of the Web's most popular sites. I asked a teenager if he understood that it carries a disclaimer; Wikipedia "can't guarantee the validity of the information found here." "That's just so that no one will sue them," he shrugged. As to the content: "It's all true, mostly." (from: New York Times)
And in a related story, the LA Times is turning their editorial page into a wiki. As Jon Stewart would say: "Huuh?":
"• Watch next week for the introduction of "wikitorials" — an online feature that will empower you to rewrite Los Angeles Times editorials." (from: LA TImes)
I thought these were interesting.
