The DNB and Wikipedia

The Observer | At £7,500 for the set, you’d think they’d get their facts right. Lovely article on how the stupendously expensive Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is full of errors. This brings to mind the ongoing state of denial about Wikipedia. As Cory Doctorow observes:

If these errors had appeared in Wikipedia entries, its likely that they would have been fixed in short order — and once they were discovered by the outraged experts quoted in this Observer article, they certainly would be fixed.
