“Passively browsing the Web may be a thing of the past. New technologies are taking collaborative Web spaces to the next level.
Blogs are so last year. The next big thing, according to Web junkies, is the ‘wiki’.”
“Had Galileo chimed into a sixteenth century wiki, for example, he might have had trouble convincing a collection of skeptical administrators and anonymous editors that the Earth was, in fact, round. His repeated protestations could have been taken as vandalism. His IP address might have been banned. Will publicly accessible wikis like Wikipedia become the source for a more accurate description of events or things, or will they merely reinforce popular beliefs?”
Lijkt me een reden temeer om voorzichtig te zijn met het formeel dichttimmeren van het web.
