"Wikipedia is certainly a top ranking search engine result for many subjects"

So much so that I wish google would implement a "no wikipedia" filter option that could be set as default. I am deeply suspicious of the "wiki" model.

Open source code is one thing:

- there's usually one or several informed gatekeepers, and
- the stuff has to pass the test of fire: it has to actually RUN (and preferably work properly too)

whereas an "encyclopedia' where any random person can post or overwrite text seems... well, not so reliable.

I'm not sure how the two became entwined under the same umberella...

I am the wandering glitch -- catch me if you can.

Working...
