+ - Does Wikipedia Suck on Science Stories?

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: An editor from Wired writes on his blog that Wikipedia sucks for science stories — not because they are inaccurate, but because of what he calls the "tragedy of the uncommon": Too many experts writing about subjects in ways that no non-expert can understand. Would this be the dumbing-down of Wikipedia — or would it be a better resource for everyone?

Always try to do things in chronological order; it's less confusing that way.
