Colin McEnroe and his very intelligent students look at the Digital Revolution in media.
"Over 1,500 administrators with special powers ensure that behaviour conforms to Wikipedia guidelines and policies."First of all, I love Wikipedia's use of British spelling. Additionally, Wikipedia claims 300,000 editors edit Wikipedia every month:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_users). Is this an adequate Wikipolice force?And according to Wikipedia, "Usually, the editors eventually reach a consensus on ways to improve the article." But is that true? Is it consensus or do people just give up on the argument?And when Wikipedia has a disclaimer about being used as a research tool/source, how does it reconcile it's promotion by Google and other linking sites as a resource for definitions, etc.?
