Wacki Wikis

Collaboration On The Go - Wacki Wikis. It's been a bad PR week for the Wikipedia project. First there was the threat of a libel lawsuit. Then the tech media picked up on the news, with some giving scathing editorials about the project and the accuracy of Wikipedia articles. Wiki sites are great for generating and maintain information from a collective community. However without any form of moderation or approval of postings, it can suffer from vandalism edits. Can Wikipedia maintain their goal of open and anonymous editing of articles, or is the entire concept flawed? I explore this and other wiki related issues in the latest COTG podcast.
