Wikipedia, for and against

September 14, 2012|By John E. McIntyre | The Baltimore Sun

Dang, Eric Hartley wants me to be responsible.

In a private note, which he has given me permission to use, along with his name, he gently reproaches me for the rhetorical excesses in my most recent post on Wikipedia. He has something there, as you will see. After quoting his note at length, I will try to present a more nuanced and balanced evaluation of Wikipedia's usefulness and limitations. It will be duller than the previous.
