The Charms and Challenges of Wikipedia
Check out Nicholson Baker's review of Wikipedia: The Missing Manual by John Broughton [our post] in the March 20, 2008 issue of The New York Review of Books. Here's a snip from The Charms of Wikipedia:
In his introduction, Broughton, who has himself made more than 15,000 Wikipedia edits, putting him in the elite top 1,200 of all editors—promises "the information you absolutely need to avoid running afoul of the rules." And it's true: this manual is enlightening, well organized, and full of good sense. Its arrival may mark a new, middle-aged phase in Wikipedia's history; some who read it will probably have wistful longings for the crazy do-it-yourself days when the whole project was just getting going.
