All the errors whether intentional or not occur in printed media as well.
There seems to be another effort underway to discredit Wikipedia, I'm amused by the claims of errors and inaccuracies and frankly they pale in comparison to some I've seen in printed books.

The nice thing about Wikipedia is you can hop right on there and fix it.

I'm all for automation and I think it looks promising.
What I don't want to see are solutions that are dependent on outside resources (for example SIRI on the iPhone, it has to use a connected server to do what it does), I prefer to see solutions that are autonomous, inclusive and complete without the need for Internet or an outside server (unless you choose to do so)
