Esquire investigates Wikipedia

Writer A.J. Jacobs asked Wikipedians to edit an Esquire article about themselves last month (see previous story), and was pleased with the results. Several publications noted the effort, including ZDNet (and its many syndicators), and CyberJournalist.

Are educators hostile to Wikipedia?

On September 27, blogger Andy Carvin posted a query to the blogosphere after a discussion with Jimmy Wales. He wants to know how educators really feel about using Wikipedia in the classroom, and received several thoughtful replies in comments, and several discussions in other blogs, including Wikipedia in the classroom, Hostile towards Wikipedia?, Are Educators Hostile to Wikipedia?, another Are Educators Hostile to Wikipedia? and Wikipedia - Quality Content?.

Citation in article

In the citation to the Daily Nation on electrocution, is it meant to link to the article electric shock or electric chair? The article electrocution is just a disambig page, and the site requires registration; I'm not registering because I may receive unsolicited email if I do. Thanks. - Graham/pianoman87 talk 07:37, 3 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've added {{onlinesource2005}} to talk:electric shock but I have the same reservations about registration at that site. Could someone please fill in the blanks, and update Wikipedia:Wikipedia as a press source 2005 also? —Phil | Talk 15:07, 7 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
