Tracking Wikipedia Press Release

Wired has published an article about the open source encyclopedia Wikipedia reaching its 100,000th article. This item first started appearing in weblogs last week. Once it’s made its way to Wired, it will be read by the editors of more mainstream publications, who may want to feature it in articles for the general public. (Blogdex lets you track blogger links to the wikipedia press release, to see who first thought it was newsworthy.) Any news editor who wants to serve young, technologically savvy readers had better be paying attention to weblogs. Tracking Wikipedia Press ReleaseLiteracy Weblog)

I’ve contributed to the Wikipedia articles on interactive fiction, usability, Elia Kazan, and maybe a half dozen others.
