Philosophy and the wikipedia debate

21 July 2006 I have an admission to make, I enjoy a bit of philosophy on the side. The ABC has a neat philosophy program which gives me a weekly fix. I listen to it via podcast, the New Age way.

A couple of weeks ago, it gave the air to Jaron Lanier, that entertaining self-publicist. He is no longer obessed with Virtual Reality, but is now a critic of the collective wisdom of crowds. Listen to it here (mp3) or, for Jonathon, here is the transcript.

Wikipedia consistently manages to attract a broad range of critics across the spectrum of the litarary and traditional publishing elites, while ever getting much use. There must be a message there somewhere...
