Cool Web Site – Wikiscanner   Leave a comment

I don’t know Virgil Griffith, but his little project is very cool.  Digg pointed me at this Wired article about WikiScanner.

I generally find Wikipedia to be an eminently useful resource, but the open-edit nature does lead to occasional questions regarding peer review.  Tools like Wikiscanner go a long way towards providing additional levels of credibility (and identifying the lack thereof) for the site.  This should be incorporated directly into Wikipedia itself.
