Back last September I posted about the Nature comparative survey of Wikipedia and the Encyclopaedia Britannica (see Greenflame: Who’re you going to call (or rather, look up)?). Now it looks as if things are getting a bit nastier with Britannica taking out newspaper ads against Nature and its survey. See,
- The Times : Britannica hits back in Wikipedia row
- The Times : Britannica ‘still rules’ over web rival
- Independent Online Edition > Media : Wikipedia under the microscope over accuracy.
Today’s posting inspired by the UserFriendly cartoon here.
