testing wiki

This blog entry discusses a paper about testing the reliancy of wikipedia, with results remind you of the weaknesses of everyone’s favorite cheat sheet. Of course, if it isn’t being purposefully duped, then it’s only clueless people who think they know enough to write entries that get in the way. But if two thirds of the author’s erroneous claims could last 48 hours, then at any given time a clueless entry may be up… Though really, I just like the blog entry for his cute “fibs about philosophers”.
