Wired on Wikipedia  
Interesting article, does a bit of a soft profile of the founder of Wikipedia. Does make the excellent point:

"You can't evaluate Wikipedia by traditional encyclopedia standards. A forked Wikipedia run by academics would be Nupedia 2.0. It would use the One Best Way production model, which inevitably would produce a One Best Way product. That's not a better or worse Wikipedia any more than is a better or worse Washington Post. They are different animals."
