Re: [ARSCLIST] Whacky Packia
An interesting item appeared on NPR's "All Things Considered" last night. A
report appeared in the journal "Nature", written by a group of scientists
assessing the accuracy and validity of scientific entries in Wikipedia.
They found it about as accurate as the Encyclopaedia Britannica! The short
feature is worth a listen. Bottom line: they recommend that experts in
scientific fields become more involved in the Wiki to increase it's value.
