Kook of the Year!
There’s a wonderful story on Slashdot about a crackpot who wrote a Wikipedia page about himself, only to have it, er, rendered more objective by other contributors. This then drove him wild, with predictable results. The current version of the page seems admirable to me, but it’s had to be locked to prevent further vandalism. Opponents of Wikipedia will doubtless try to use this story as evidence that an open project like this cannot work. To me, it proves the opposite.
