“The Great Failure of Wikipedia”: Presentation by Jason Scott at Notacon 3 in Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday, April 8, 2006. Covers the universally-editable encyclopedia-like site Wikipedia, architectural and procedural choices by co-founder Jimbo Wales and the often-unintended consequences of these choices and philosophy. Includes short overviews of the Brian Peppers Debacle, the Ashida Kim Controversy, and the fallacy of “Notability” and “Neutral Point of View” as implemented in Wikipedia as it currently stands.Not intended to be a “Wikipedia shouldn’t exist” screed, this speech/presentation is instead a quick-paced, profane listing of the results of Wikipedia’s great experiment and how reality is changing the endeavor inherently and permanently.
