The Wiki abides

By Chris Daly 

No surprise: the venerable Encyclopedia Britannica is throwing in the towel and doing away with its print edition.

This is not just one of those “signs of the times” moments. It is really a testament to the vision of one man: Jimmy Wales, the founder of “Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.”

He is the one who did what had to be done: mobilize the technology of the web and channel the collective intelligence of millions of people into a collective, collaborative, open-ended fountain of knowledge. Bravo, Jimmy.

Now, let’s all try to make it better.
