Britannica 2.0 (sort of…)
"Can it really be? Encyclopaedia Britannica will soon be launching a new initiative to promote greater participation by both expert contributors and readers.
Both groups will be invited to play a larger role in expanding, improving, and maintaining the information on the Web under the Encyclopaedia Britannica name. They will also be sharing content they create with other visitors.
This comes as a surprise after years of antagonism between Wikepedia and Britannica where the the main conflict has been on the subject of the value of the contributions of amateurs. But is this really such a quantum leap as Britannica will have us beleive?" [RJ]
