Boing Boing: Correcting the Record: Wikipedia vs The Register

The difference between errors you can fix and errors you can't, or, why Wikipedia is better than the Register... "With Wikipedia, anyone can roll back the clock and see what was published, when, and by whom: Wikipedia's History and Discuss pages are palimpsests recording the process by which the truth was eventually negotiated. With The Register, the negotiation of the truth took place behind closed doors. I never got a response to my emails to Orlowski nor was I informed when the article was corrected. No retraction notice was published, and there's no way for a reader of the article to discover how it was edited, by whom, and when." Submitted on January 12, 2006 1:14 p.m. by StephenDownes.
