Why wikipedia? On March 9, 1976, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission entered an opinion and order enjoining Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., from using: a) deceptive advertising practices in recruiting sales agents and obtaining sales leads, and b) deceptive sales practices in the door-to-door presentations of its sales agents. The Chicago based World Book encyclopedia was always a higher caliber favorite of mine, along with the endlessly fun The Way Things Work CD-ROM. Although to throw them a bone, Britannica's Great Books of the Western World does seem like an audacious project. Perhaps someday wikipedia will one-day, become a more interactive learning tool for the youth of the world and dispense of the necessity for teachers entirely?
Here's to dreaming and the work necessary to ensure it won't end up like the Great Soviet Encyclopedia, that editors will strive to keep in mind that only they have the power to ensure it's not a barbarian horde but can be something better and to remedy [|Why a cabal is perceived] by always keeping in mind the Iron law of oligarchy/that all organizations drift towards oppression with time. With this being as true of social structures as entropy is in thermodynamics.
