Try this link:http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/wikis/The best one of these is the George W Bush one.http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2006/04/wikipedia_biasis_there_a_neutr.htmlThe "roundup" was a bit misleading but still left room for some decent comments:http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2006/04/your_take_roundupbelievers_neg.htmlThe e-mail conversation with Jimbo and a critic was chilling, albeit a little difficult to read:http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2006/04/email_debatewales_discusses_po.htmlTalking about danah boyd and MySpace, and brushing Wikipedia's problems off as "growing pains" showed a severe lack of research:http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2006/04/digging_deepermyspace_wikipedi.htmlAnd a lot of people missed this, due to bad filing, but this was what started the Wikipedia Week, from the week before:http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2006/04/your_takehow_much_do_you_trust.html
I wish Cox would have provided links to his edits so we could actually evaluate them.
Ah -- I've looked it up. Cox deleted large portions of the article without any explanation. (The sections were immediately replaced, of course, and he got into a revert war and was (briefly) banned.)

Wikipedia is an open-source encyclopedia. It's radically open — anyone can edit it — and increasingly relevant. This unofficial weblog tracks its progress (and lifts quotes).
