"What's next? Time peeks into the future", a summary of this week's Time Magazine cover story, says "...as Time tech expert Lev Grossman writes, we're living in an age of individual innovation spurred on by the Internet as well as what he calls "individual altruism" — a form of group project best represented by resources like Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that is edited by the masses instead of an elite cadre of professional editors." The story was also prominently displayed on the front page of the CNN.com website (which features Time content).

Possible mention

Since this may fall under WP:AUTO, I'm going to list it here and let someone else decide.  ;)

I made a point of mentioning Wikipedia in a recent interview at whitedust.net. Wikipedia also came up multiple times during the related Slashdot thread. I figure it's a tenuous case for whether or not it counts as "Wikipedia in the News", but I wanted to at least point it out. :) The interview is probably also worth adding under either "References" or "External links" at Elonka Dunin.
