A recent story on National Public Radio discusses the "people's encyclopedia," Wikipedia, which, we notice, is getting a lot of attention on LMS discussion groups these days as well. NPR describes the story: "Wikipedia is a dynamic, online encyclopedia that allows users to create and edit their own entries. Volunteers then fact-check the entries to ensure accuracy. NPR's Laura Sydell reports that as Wikipedia has grown dramatically in popularity, some have begun to question its accuracy."
