I’m posting this mostly for myself, to keep track of this link (Kristina take note) so I can use it as an example in class, come the Fall.

How does Wikipedia, the online open-source encyclopedia, actually work? Web surfers got a close look at the process when users of the site edited an entry about the mass-transit bombs that struck London last week.
As of my writing this, there have been approximately 5,000 edits to the 7 July 2005 London bombings Wikipedia entry. That’s approximately 500 edits per day.
