and Their Applications
- The Book Stops Here
- Jimmy Wales wanted to build a free encyclopedia on the Internet. So he raised an army of amateurs and created the self-organizing, self-repairing, hyperaddictive library of the future called Wikipedia.
- Wiki Mania
- Occasional headaches are worth the value of an open community, according to Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia. He says most Web developers anticipate problems instead of potential. "To me, that's like opening a steakhouse and saying, 'Wait. What if people want to stab each other with their steak knives?' ... What does that do to your community?"
- Wikipedia Faces Growing Pains
- The difficulties Wikipedia faces these days relate mostly to its systems for creating and vetting articles, and whether it covers enough specialized topics sufficiently well to be considered a well-rounded, single-reference source.
