Reliability of Wikis

Theresa Clifford, “Is Wikipedia Part of a New ‘Global Brain’?” Spiked, 14 February 2007, raises some interesting questions about the reliability of wikis. "The internet is often celebrated for giving a voice to anybody and everybody. But in a world of wannabe journalists and self-appointed ‘experts’ on every subject, it’s worth asking whether these people know more (or even as much) as those established, apparently old-fashioned experts who came before them."
