Well, nobody gets it. But everybody gets some part of it.

The wiki is a radical communication device. It sure ain't a way to make a reliable reference BOOK. But as long as it's seen as communication, not pure reference, WOW.

And I'm glad that Google is supporting this. Mostly because they need that kind of capability in their on-going adventures.

Which is probably what somebody should do: write this as a tale of adventure.

Great blog. Thanks.

its good enough... until all books are free – that is to say written on commission with no copyrights and instantly available to any via the internet – until that day, nothing will be better than wikipedia.
