pondering wiki reciprocity

Filing cabinet
 

“Wikipedia is like bittorrent, if people are interested in a specific article, it get[s] better.” (comment by soobrosa to Academia and Wikipedia by Danah Boyd) This is not brandnew, I know, but in the face of my pressingly upcoming teaching project, I just unearthed this from my HDD filing cabinets—and those, too: Situating Wikipedia by Danah Boyd, Who’s afraid of Wikipedia? by Clay Shirky, Wikipedia by Clay Shirky, K5 Article on Wikipedia Anti-elitism by Clay Shirky, and Why Wikipedia Must Jettison Its Anti-Elitism by Larry Sanger. Connected to the issue, but with a twist, are defrag wikipedia, trail of sources, and further trails of sources.
