Wikipedia turned 6 years old last Monday.
However, there was an article in Dec 5 issue of Information Week that “Wikipedia will fail in four years, crushed under the weight of an automated assault by marketers and others seeking online traffic”
according to a law professor.
Nicholas Carr of Rough Type has a posting called “Is Wikipedia a black hole?”. It’s about Wikipedia making links invisible to search engines like Google.
Steve Rubel of Micro Persuasion has a posting called “The Wikipedia threat to the Google Empire.”
Also Wikipedia has implemented “cascading protection” against “indirect” vandalism of the main page.
