Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Hooray for the Wikipedia

Information is a public good which should optimally not be priced for use. I am a big fan of the Wikipedia and use it all the time. I use it as an online encylopedia and, sometimes, simply as a dictionary.

I always keep my eye open for nonsense on it but, for the most part, find it a valuable and self-critical resource that openly flaunts its own imperfections and limitations. This NY Times article argues that the community of about 1000 young individuals comprising the bulk of the Wikipedia contributors, will enjoy less freedom to modify content in the future. Maybe this is essential to guard against Wikipedia vandals but I hope it does not deflate the idealism of the dedicated Wikipedia workers – the problem itself reflects the strength and value of the Wikipedia.
