Speculative redesign of the Washington Post as a wiki, with a cool, practical twist: only Post staffers can edit main stories, but everyone can track their edits and view article histories. Great idea, and a huge improvement over the current current system. Full size image.

More explanation (some of it's about how misguided the Wikitorials thing was). Also, I notice they've chosen "History of this Page" for the history function. It's a good name; Wikipedia should steal it. The whole page is a case study in beautiful, spare, functional design.
