Following up on prior posts about the Wikipedia (see Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia and FactBug.org searches the Wikipedia), I'd like to pass along a quick comment from Pete Blackshaw who runs of the most credible blog analysis sites on the web. In an article called Wikipedia and CGM (Consumer-Generated Media) Pete says:
Wikipedia is emerging as a source of immediate and thorough background - more reliable and timely than other encyclopedias or knowledge databases.
This comment is quite interesting because it shows that a user-supported group can produce works of high-quality. Years ago people would be more skeptical. Wikipedia and other successful sites where users generate the content now have their own label -- Web2.0.
