LA Times Wikitorial Has Left the Building (For Now)
Posted by Ernest Miller
So I decided to see how the LA Times' "wikitorial" experiment was going this morning, but currently the only thing on the website is: "The Los Angeles Times Wiki is currently closed" (LAT Wiki). Vandalism perhaps? System maintenance? It would be nice to have a little more information.
In any case, Ross Mayfield thinks that the forked Wiki might have worked (Wikitorial Fork). On some topics, perhaps, you can have a single fork. But these are relatively rare. Do the two expressed opinions of the political parties cover the range of opinion? Rather than foster many voices and an exhaustive range of opinion, doesn't a forked wiki simply encourage false left/right dichotomies? You could have many forks, but why then a Wiki?
