John Dean on Internet Research (Who next, Bono?)
John W. Dean, former counsel to President Nixon, opines on using blogs, etc. in Doing Legal, Political, and Historical Research for Findlaw's Modern Practice. Who next, Bono?
In discussing Wikipedia, he writes:
When I read the Wikipedia entry for myself, for example, I found it falsely states that in 1995, I admitted that my book Blind Ambition was ghost-written. Not only did I never make such an admission, but the book was not, in fact, ghost-written. Obviously, I could make a submission to Wikipedia to correct this misinformation, but so far, I've held off, for I am more curious to see if the open sourcing is self-correcting, than I am concerned about the error.
