Wikipedia third most popular news and information source!


From the start, Mr. Wales gave the site a clear mission: to offer free knowledge to everybody on the planet. At the same time, he put in place a set of rules and policies that he continues to promote, like the need to present information with a neutral point of view.

The system seems to be working. Wikipedia is now the Web’s third-most-popular news and information source, beating the sites of CNN and Yahoo News, according to Nielsen NetRatings.

Wikipedia has demonstrated how possible it is to work collaboratively online. Recently they have introduced temporary measures to control who can edit certain sections of the website. A completely open system is open to abuse but with each tweak the Wikipedia just gets better and better.
