Wikipedia Bias and Spin in the News

The Boston Globe is featuring Wikipedia in a two-part article. They focus today in this article looking at the issues brought up earlier here: Capitol Hill aides buffing up their political boss's image or sabotaging opponents. There are interesting interviews with Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger about how Wikipedia is doing. In-depth coverage of the Wiki-attacks on Nashville newspaperman and former aide to Bobby Kennedy, John Siegenthaler are here, too. Very interesting article.

I also recommend, and cannot seem to find a convenient link to John Dvorak's column in the latest PC Magazine. He discusses Google's apparent plan to light up the dark fiber in order to circumvent the telecommunication giants who are re-congealing into monopolies. Read it!
