There’s a buzz out there

Seems like wikidom is reaching critical mass–you can just feel the buzz.  The other night, just after I’d finished a day of exploring various corporate examples of wiki implementation (and there are a too many examples to choose one–here’s a sort of ugly example of a big entrenched company that’ found it way to wiki), I turned on the Cobert Report and there was Stephen giving his “Word of the Day” schtick.

What was the work of the day?  Wikiality.  As in Reality but Wiki style.  And on the air, he pulled out his laptop and changed an article about Oregon in Wikipedia.  I thought: this is now officially Critical Mass.

Course, he was having some fun with it and I suppose some of the more serious guys at Wikipedia didn’t care for it when it finally came to their attention…about 3 or 4 minutes later.  He is now banned from using Wikipedia.  Still, he declared his love of Wikipedia on prime time TV and that can’t hurt traffic any.
