New Yorker article on Wikipedia

http://www.newyorker.com/fact/content/articles/060731fa_fact

Long but interesting. Key quotes:

The president of Encyclopedia Britannica on Wikipedia: "Wikipedia is to Britannica as ‘American Idol’ is to the Juilliard School."

The founder of Wikipedia on Britannica: "Wikipedia is to Britannica as rock and roll is to easy listening. It may not be as smooth, but it scares the parents and is a lot smarter in the end."
